A self-taught artist born and raised in Norfolk, Chris now lives in South-East London, combining his two main passions – working as a professional wildlife artist and also as Senior Programmes Officer for the Born Free Foundation, specializing in the conservation of endangered species.
Extensive travel has given Chris first-hand encounters with many of the animals that now inspire his work – and to whose conservation he donates a percentage of his art sales.
