Chris Reed was born in Portland, ME where he currently resides, working as a landscape painter and teacher. He received his BA in Visual Arts from Bowdoin College in 1999, but is largely self-taught, undergoing independent study in Europe in addition to his plein air work along the coast of Maine. His expressionistic, dreamlike landscapes have been exhibited throughout New England. “Nature is the best teacher...the secret is paying close attention to the treasures it has to offer.”
