Bow Creek on the Dart
Oil on Canvas
The Artist - Chris Pitman Swac Assoc
Chris was born in Devon into a sea-faring family, his Great-Grandfather becoming a well known artist as well as skippering his own sailing trawler. Chris grew up immersed in a working marine environment before undertaking a career in architectural and structural design. However, after ill health forced a premature retirement he took the opportunity to combine his draughting ability with his creative instincts. Working predominantly in oils, he aspires to add an emotional and expressive element to capture the atmosphere of special moments in time, inspired by the coast, estuary and moorland of the Westcountry. Chris has exhibited widely, including at the RAMM and the winners exhibition of the SAA Artist Of The Year 2017 & 18 at the NEC Birmingham.
