Chris is a man of many talents, and we’re grateful he’s sharing them with us. His career in visual arts has refined his ability to uncover his clients’ needs and go the extra mile to meet them. He’s helped launch artists’ careers, publish fine art works, and filled collectors’ homes with the perfect, one-of-a-kind pieces. Now he’s ensuring every client at First in Print feels valued and experiences the highest quality service.
After earning his BFA in Painting and Drawing, he spent twenty years in California enjoying a creative career in framing, fine art printing, publishing, and owning his own fine art gallery. Wanting to reconnect with family, Chris closed his gallery and came back to the Sunshine State, where we’re very glad to have him.
As our resident expert on music from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s, he excels at music trivia and will be the one to tell you, "That obscure band/artist? Oh, yeah I’ve seen them live, twice!” You’ll find him making music and playing guitar, collecting records and brushing up on his music knowledge, and also out and about on nature walks, reading and enjoying the great outdoors.
