Chris Partridge - About
As a child I played with paint, had a chemistry set and microscope, tried to hatch a silkworm moth, and collected fossils. Discovery and creativity continued to be twin passions I pursued in my varied career as a research scientist, expedition leader, trainer, coach and facilitator. These experiences are part of the rich tangle of roots that feed and nourish my practice as an artist.
I graduated from the Open College of Art in 2015 with a 1st class BA (Hons) Degree in Painting.
“Art is a way of knowing. It’s a medium of thinking, and it’s one that grants pleasure.” Jerry Saltz
