About the Artist
A lifelong resident of Waukesha County, Chuck studied art at St. Norbert College. Following an MBA from Marquette University, this "right brain" influence led him to a career in advertising, where he was Creative Director and Principal of a multi-media agency.
Chuck is a member of the American Society of Portrait Artists as well as the Portrait Society of America and the Arts Alliance of Waukesha County. He serves on the Board of Directors of the Waukesha County Art Museum, and is a past member of the Membership Committee of the Milwaukee Art Museum. He is also a member of the League of Milwaukee Artists, the West End Artists Association, and the Waukesha Creative Arts League.
Chuck now devotes a significant amount of his time to his one "true" passion, fine art. His preference for oils and an impressionistic style translate into high energy works, featuring sun-lit subjects that are saturated with color. His unique "Renaissance" style involves painting his subjects "backwards," from dark to light on sanded panels. His subjects explore combinations of the color spectrum in light and shadow, and allow his paintings to express power and vibrancy. Two of Chuck's pieces, Bringing Them Home and Haying were selected and funded by a private donor. Acquired in 2010.
