Chris Chalk is a full time artist, who works from his studio in Cilgerran in Pembrokeshire, in the UK. Chris has always had a fascination with wildlife, nature and the outdoors, and growing up on a dairy farm in west Wales he spent much of his time roaming the fields and woodlands, sketching, and painting anything that would stay still long enough.

Chris paints a variety of subjects including wildlife and portraits, but his main passion is to paint the beautiful landscapes of both Wales and New Zealand. In his paintings he strives to create a unique snapshot of a scene, not one that is photographic and rigid, but one that is painterly and full of marks and brush strokes that impart a little bit of himself into his work.
Paintings are worked up from small oil sketches painted out in the field using a pochade box, and from photographs taken on his many adventures.

Chris' paintings can be found in collections worldwide. He accepts commissions.
