Born in Goring-on-Thames in Oxfordshire, Chris Bourne developed a strong love for the
countryside as he grew up. Eventually studying at the Berkshire College of Art and Design before graduating, Bourne became an Art Director in London for 12 years before moving on tobecome a professional artist. He now works and lives in Dorking, Surrey.
Bourne's works are alive with colour, the emerald and azure grass and flowers swaying in the wind as the surrounding trees stand firm. A sense of magic is added to the picture with the lighting, hiding the sky in white and casting a soft but distinctive ambient glow on the surrounding environment.
