Knowing he wanted to do something different, Chuck spent hours each day sketching images of fields, hillsides, animals and people. Chuck began his art education at the Art Institute of Cincinnati and finished at the California Art Institute in Southern California. He spent many years as an illustrator and graphic artist while painting fine art. Chuck has been invited to and participated in many national plein air events as a guest artist.
