International Artist Christopher Reid
was born in South Africa, but moved to the US at an early age. He studied fine art at The Savannah College Of Art And Design and UNC-Wilmington. He trained in all media, but currently favors pastel, acrylic, watercolor, and charcoal. You will see in his portfolio that he enjoys painting all kinds of subjects and his style varies based on his mood at the time and the subject. Reid is currently accepting commissions for paintings and exhibiting in various locations throughout South Africa.
Chris’s up to date CV is now viewable online.

Gearing up for even more plein air painting!
I can’t believe it is summer already! The garden is exploding with growth and we got some much needed rain. The next few weeks are packed with end-of-year functions and art competitions. December will be a brief rest before the back to back exhibitions for the first half of 2018. I hope to fit in lots of plein air painting. I will try and keep my plein air plans listed on the South African Plein Air Painters Facebook group. If anyone wants to join me or just pop by to see what I am working on, I love connecting with people through art.
