Chris is taking part in ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE, which was set up by artist Matthew Burroughs on the 16th March in response to the COVID19 pandemic. In just a few weeks it has become a global movement towards a generous culture and economy in support of artists and makers.

The project uses social media platform Instagram, which is a popular platform for artists to post images and share their work. Artists and makers can post their images using #artistsupportpledge giving details of their works and price. To encourage sales all works are priced no more than £200.

Every time an artist reaches £1,000 of sales, they pledge to buy £200 of work from other artist(s). Donations are encouraged too, made to particular concerns such as @_hopsitalrooms.

All of the works shown here have been made by Chris during the COVID19 LOCKDOWN and are based on his travel sketchbooks, often re-presenting sketches made on several visits.
