Chris Chapman

Painting is the pathway I chose for my life’s work, but it also chose me. It’s the best way I can honor beauty and express with authenticity what I see and feel in Nature.

When the painting flows out of what I take in through my senses, nothing could be more fulfilling. The journey of change in what I seek to express is the only constant. Artists like Ray Strong or Milford Zornes painting into their 100th year exemplify how I want to live.

I’m grateful for our Oak Group family, united in raising awareness and preserving the land. They continue to inspire me as conservationists and great painters.
