About This Class


The universe is a vast and beautiful thing.  With new discoveries going on frequently, it seems so much more relevant to our daily lives.  To me, it is the epitome of abstract art.  I started painting the universe to explore my definition of abstract art since I’ve always struggled with it.  As a result, I discovered a whole new adventure in digital painting.  

I hope you will join me in a series of classes, as I paint the universe on my tablet.  This class, a step by step painting of The Pinwheel Galaxy, is for beginners or advanced art students.  I invite you to follow along on your own tablet or computer, bringing your own unique perspective.  See you out there...

Hi... I'm Chris, a designer, illustrator and maker. I've been creating since I could hold a pencil, so I'm really passionate about art and design.  I'm also passionate about sharing what I have learned as a life-long artist.  I'm a believer in adding beauty to this world, and what better way to do that, than teaching others how to create!!
