Recent paintings in South Africa by Chris are mainly watercolour landscapes.
Chris, born in Capetown, has for many years been resident in Norway, and is now living in Durbanville. He is an ecological architect, author of many books and articles on environment, energy and sustainable development, and university course leader. He lived and worked for several years in countries including France and Bhutan, in addition to Scandinavia. He has also translated Buddhist texts from Tibetan and is a keen organic gardener and amateur musician. Chris has no formal art training and has only taken up painting seriously over the last 2-3 years, with trees, skies and the world of nature as his abiding passion. Although he often works in unusual detail, he also finds inspiration in the way watercolours sometimes take on their own life with unexpected surprises and suggestions.
