About Chris Wilson

For as long as I can remember, I've always had an urge to draw in my sketchbook. Primarily drawing wildlife, plants, creatures with wings, people, and things that glow in the dark.

My work is constantly changing and developing but I am passionate about spontaneous sketches using a mixed media drawing approach. Most of my work includes pencils, pens, markers, colored pencils, and watercolors. This drawing process is enjoyable for me because it can take on so many forms and textures.
