Chris started making prints in his twenties and discovered the power of the multiple to communicate. A medium like etching extended and enhanced his drawing, opening up new possibilities. Lithography was a slow starter, but after a difficult apprenticeship, he began to revel in its freedom. Recently silkscreen and engraving have begun to play a part. Printmaking is a way of taking his thoughts into a published public domain. Chris invites people to "read" his work as well as look at it.
