Born and raised in Kansas City, KS, Christopher started drawing very young. Sitting at the large, round dining table capable of seating all 10 kids, drawings of amazing cars were created on a regular basis. High School art classes provided a foundation of education to work from in drawing, composition, and experience.
He joined the Marine Corps out of high school, attended college for a couple of years studying electronic technology, and then re-enlisted into the Army. Spending a total of 10 years on the military, Christopher was challenged not only as a Marine and Soldier, but artistically as well. Commanders, 1st Sgts, and buddies alike had no shortage of projects to be drawn or painted. Christopher was stationed in Alaska for a few years, then moved back permanently in 2001.
Working from his living room for the next 12 years, Christopher pressed forward in developing his techniques and skill-sets into a more realistic style. After years of slow moving progress and lulls in development, he decided to take a year off from work and to grow and establish himself as a Professional Artist in 2013 (meaning he finally gets paid to do it.) That year went very well with countless commissions, (including a government contract for 20 Alaskan Adjutant Generals portraits), full drawing courses, and more than a handful of market and business showings. He now spends most of his free time locked away in the Man Cave Studio creating and developing.
