About Me


p r o f i l e

Born in New Hampshire from a creative family, Chris is both a painter and a sculptor. His father, an accomplished pastiche artist and his grandmother, an award-winning tinsel folk artist were strong influences on him. Mary Ellen Plaisted, his aunt, has her oil paintings displayed in galleries across the Carolinas. 

He learned woodcarving and metalwork from a close neighbor at an early age. He received his education from Parsons School of Design, in New York City.  This launched a 15-year career as a graphic designer. He has continued his true passion for painting and sculpture as well. Through the use of various mediums; steel, concrete, plaster and copper, he continues to push his ideas of self-expression.

Christopher currently resides in New Milford, CT with his wife, two children, and Leonidas, their bearded dragon.


s t a t e m e n t

My sculpture tends to focus on forms of conflict. It may be in the concept: man vs. nature, social vs. emotion or it may be the tension created by the use of contrasting materials. I connect with the juxtaposition of different materials, steel with copper and concrete, wood with metals. I believe that the opposing materials, or colors in my work, intensify each element’s properties to produce a more dynamic form of fine art.  


i n s p i r a t i o n

As I continue to hopefully create visually appealing art, I don’t want to be constrained by the style or the medium. Quite the opposite, they should flow to the next piece no matter the form or function required.
