Like most artists, I loved drawing as a kid. In Grade 2, my big claim to fame was the ability to create realistic treasure maps; with coconuts trees, pirate ships and x marking the spot. Maybe this why landscapes hold a strong fascination for me, because they are filled stories and adventures.

My art practice has gone through many phases, but always centered around people and the lands they shape.  This website (Fat Cats) is dedicated to all things representational. It is the foundation for my work in abstraction which moves beyond the representational and explores our sense of landscapes.

If you like to see my abstract art, please visit chriserskine.ca

Fat Cats is also dedicated to my mural art which I hoping to develop much more in the near future.  I am open to working with other mural artists, so if you need help send me an email.  If you have a wall, whether outdoors or indoors, please email me and let see what we can create together.  I am available for portraits, landscapes and murals if they occur within the Hamilton to Toronto corridor.

The best way to reach me if by email: chriserskineartist@gmail.com

Best wishes, Chris

This is the official web site of the Save Century Manor Task Force 2 (CMTF2). This task force was created not only to draw attention to the existence of Century Manor, an important Hamilton heritage building in danger of demolition by neglect, but also to provide information on Century Manor and to gain support within and outside our community for our ongoing fight to save and preserve this heritage building through restoration and adaptive reuse.
