Chicago area native, Chris currently works from his home studio in Aurora, Illinois. He studied visual communications at Ferris State College in Big Rapids, Michigan, and continued his next two years at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois with an emphasis on illustration. As commercial illustration began its move to the desktop, Chris went back to school to “retool,” applying his considerable skills to the digital art medium. Today his work is evenly divided between digital and conventional formats. Depending on client needs, or preference, his clean, easy-to-read illustration style translates well into both mediums. Chris also works for many publishing companies and ad agencies across the country as an illustrator for print and/or web.
“My philosophy as a professional artist, is to make every effort to keep my clients pleased, with the best art product I can deliver. This is easy to achieve, because I truly love what I do.”
