About Chris

My work as an architectural illustrator is necessarily commercial, but I hope that all my work will inspire in some way, and convey the perennial enthusiasm that drives me on in my painting!

Nicholas Blakemore (Chairman Wychwood Homes Group)

Chris has been our regular new homes artist for nearly 15 years helping us successfully convey to prospective purchasers what the finished home will look like before it can be seen in reality.
He has a particular emphathy with period conversions and Cotswold stone houses. His bringing “to life” what is often a derelict site and only a plan of what is to be built, has been an invaluable tool for us over all these years. Chris’s paintings have proved so important to us that we even named one of our developments after him – “Fothergill Court” in 1998.
