Chas began painting as a hobby 20 years ago, whilst working full time as an electrician, painting in different mediums from watercolours and gouache before finally settling with bright bold acrylic and took inspiration from the works of David Hockney and John Piper. Finally in 1994 he became a full time artist and began working from home.

Strong primary colours, fluffy white clouds and multi-coloured balloons make the paintings instantly recognisable and fun. He used to live on St. Georges Quay in Lancaster, whilst painting one evening, a balloon came floating down the river. He took a photgraph of it and decided to use it in one of his paintings. Over the years, balloons have become a constant part of his working and people are often disappointed if he does not include them in his work!

He continues to be inspired by people, architecture and landscapes of Lancaster, Morecambe and the surrounding area. He is also involved with art projects in local schools and loves to see how children get excited about colour, shape and design.
