Born in New Hampshire from a creative family, Chris is both a painter and a sculptor. His father, an accomplished pastiche artist and his grandmother, an award-winning tinsel folk artist were strong influences on him. Mary Ellen Plaisted, his aunt, has her oil paintings displayed in galleries across the Carolinas. He learned woodcarving and metalwork from a close neighbor at an early age. He received his education from Parsons School of Design, in New York City. This launched a 15-year career as a graphic designer. He has continued his true passion for painting and sculpture as well. Through the use of various mediums; steel, concrete, plaster and copper, he continues to push his ideas of self-expression. Christopher currently resides in New Milford, CT with his wife, two children, and Leonidas, their bearded dragon.
