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.
