Award winning artist, Chris Brandley specializes in oils, but also has many years experience in acrylics and watercolors. She is known for her vivid use of color, and works in the “Alla Prima” method of painting, which allows her to achieve a spontaneous, fresh result.
Being the daughter of an Air Force pilot, Chris grew up in Europe, Asia, and the United States. The diverse cultural experiences she encountered play an instrumental role in her art. She is especially inspired by the contrast of colorful flowers against ancient architecture. Chris received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art Education from Baylor University, and has taught and worked in the Visual Arts field for 30 years. She has a deep passion to connect with other artists and share what she has learned through the years.
Her work has been featured on television backdrops, documentaries, International magazines and other products. Her most recent feature is of her painting “First Snow”, found on popcorn tins at “Big Lots” stores throughout the Unites States and Canada.
