Chris Parks says that to work with his hands “makes him feel complete.” Chris prides himself in not being traditional and has many unique interests. When at the art studio Chris enjoys sketching and painting, but the majority of his works are sculptural. Chris enjoys working three-dimensionally and has created many imaginative mixed media pieces. He is inspired by mythology and especially loves creating visual representations of obscure creatures that only exist in written lore. “Renaissance style with a modern twist” is the way that Chris aptly describes his own work.
