Welcome / Croeso - My name is Chris Chalk and I am a full time professional artist with 10 years experience working from my art studio in Pembrokeshire, in West Wales. On this website you'll find an extensive gallery of original oil paintings for sale, as well as limited and open edition giclée prints. Predominantly a landscape artist specialising in paintings of Wales and the UK, I also paint wildlife art and pet portraits. I paint exclusively in oils, and all of the paintings on this website are oil paintings.
In September 2018, the outdoor brand, Berghaus, revealed its multi-million-pound UK advertising campaign. To launch the campaign, they created an installation at the London Design Biennale in Somerset House featuring some of my artwork. The 'Time to Get Out' campaign is being rolled out through a mix of mainstream national media and signals a new direction for the brand. You can see some of my Welsh paintings being used on the BERGHAUS, COTSWOLD OUTDOORS, BLACKS, MILLETS, ULTIMATE OUTDOORS, AMAZON websites, as well as on advertising hoardings throughout the UK.

""Hi Chris, Jackie loved her pet portrait painting of Ben. I managed to get it framed in a black wood grain chamfered frame, before Christmas and I wrapped it in gift wrap with another photo of Ben all over it; to make it an extra special gift. See attached photo of Ben with his Mum."
"We love the painting Chris, we've hung it in the bedroom for now, but we're going to hang it above the fire in the lounge as soon as we've made room."
Philip and Sarah Bentley

Although the majority of my larger oil paintings are painted at home in my art studio, I spent a good deal of time out in the British countryside gathering reference material, making preparatory sketches and trying out ideas as smaller scale oil paintings using my pochade box or as watercolours in my sketchbook. Back at my art studio I then work these sketches into finished paintings.
