A classic example of the popular notion of an 'undiscovered genius' , Chris describes himself, with humility, as 'a drawer' rather than an artist. Yet every drawing he reveals evokes immediate gasps of admiration from every person I have known who has seen his work. He has had some illustrations published but I cannot display his work to the reader without prejudicing his future - his style is so distinctive that it is easily recognizable - and there are still many people who steadfastly believe that anyone diagnosed as schizophrenic cannot produce great art. Chris secretes fantastic, highly original images onto paper like - to put it pithily - a cow secretes milk. He has had very little formal instruction in drawing techniques; his is a raw, largely untutored, talent.
