For the next 30 years he worked as an art director for various advertising agencies in London and in Oslo, Norway.
It was in 2001, while he was living in Søgne (Norway), that Chris learnt how to cut lino.
"My first prints were of local views but I soon turned my hand to quirky humour and in 2004 two of my 'Dirty Habit' prints were selected to hang in Sørlandsutstillingen an exhibition that toured Southern Norway".
Chris returned to the UK in 2005 and began to specialise in wildlife subjects.
"While some of my linocuts have a more conventional format, I have developed a collage-style of printing where smaller images butt up against each other to make a larger final picture".
Chris has exhibited these complicated linocuts with the Society of Wildlife Artists every year since 2007 and in 2015 he was elected Full Membership of the Society.
Chris lives and works in the Forest of Dean.
