Christopher is one of Bermuda’s most accomplished watercolour painters. He received his degree in Fine Arts in Canada in 1971, and was employed as a graphic designer in Canada and Bermuda. He returned to painting after coming home to Bermuda and has won numerous awards for art which has been well received in group and solo shows. Christopher has worked in watercolour for the last 25 years. He paints quickly and directly enjoying the transparency, the immediacy, and the unpredictability of the medium.
He is an enthusiastic member and sometime leader of the local Plein Air painting group and teaches watercolour workshops on an occasional basis. He also been painting with oils for the last few years and has recently returned to acrylics which ha last worked with 37 years ago.
He is married to a teacher who is also a watercolour artist, and has a daughter who is one of his perceptive critics. He also used to have an ancient and venerable cat who had been known to help by lying on his pallete.
His work is available at the Dockyard Art Centre, Windjammer 3 Gallery, The Bermuda Society Of Art, and The Elliott Gallery. You are welcome to visit his studio in Southampton. Please feel free to email him for further information or call him at 339-1054 to arrange a time to visit.
