About Chris

Currently viewing:amosartworks » about


I am currently employed full time and applying whatever spare time I can muster to my artwork. As a self taught artist, once every couple of years I would pick up a pencil and paper to sketch anything that took my fancy. Mostly portraits and pets. In more recent years, colour was introduced into my sketches using pastel pencils. From my first sketch using pastel pencils, I knew that this medium would be perfect for my artwork. After various courses with established pastel artists, I was further encouraged to use pastels to "paint" rather than sketch in colour. Please check the link for further Info.

Since April 2005 I have been focused on varying and improving my artwork from people and pet portrait sketches, to portrait paintings and landscapes in soft pastel, oils and acrylics.

I am an active member of The Dunfermline Art Club, a friendly club located at Townhill just outside Dunfermline. Please take a moment to take a look around our site
