Chris Forsey has been an illustrator and artist for nearly all his working life and he lives and has his studio in Dorking, Surrey. He is mostly interested in landscape, townscape and coastal subjects and also Still Life. The close proximity of The North Downs to his home and studio constantly inspires him and he paints and sketches this fine landscape regularly.
His main preoccupation is with atmosphere, light and weather, and he endeavours to capture the fleeting changes and how it affects the scene before him. He prefers to work in the studio from location sketches and photographs, mostly in water-based media.
He was elected a member of The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours in 2010 and also a member of The Society of Graphic Fine Artists.
