Chris Butler wishes all with the Gemini zodiac sign the best of Happy Birthday's!
Chris would also like to welcome all to his website, one in which you'll be introduced to variety of his works that range from the humorous to the highly dramatic. He's been well known for more than 35 years for his brilliance in the Advertising, Entertainment and Publishing industries with award winning pieces highlighted in book cover, billboard and poster form. Chris has experienced a lifetime of dreams, one in which he has become noted for his versatility and ability to work in multiple styles--oils, pen and ink, or a mixture of mediums--but more so in Paper Sculpture, a style he has mastered beyond the realm of others. After perusing the site, you'll soon see that he has no fear of subject matter. If anything, it excites him to delve into any new challenge and he does so throught a willingness to extend the boundaries of lighting, color, depth and dimension to create something special, evident by the western, wildlife, childrens, and zodiac pieces of true art he has created.

(Note: If you are making a multiple order, you may well recieve a reduced rate. For details refer to the "discount tab".)
Chris is now proud and thrilled to be able to make his art available to the public. Through this site you can make a purchase ranging from a high-end print on archival paper or canvas--to a decorative free standing tile--or, if preferred, a simple keepsake, such as a coffee mug or magnet. He feels that it's important to keep one's budget in mind, strictly so the consumer is given the opportunity to enjoy the artwork as much as he did while producing it. (Note: Some originals are available for purchase. If you should have an interest, please contact Chris with a note on the contact page. He'll then personally be in touch to explain further details, such as the dimensions, shipping preference, history of the piece and, of course, the price.)
Chris's quote of the month:
"Anyone who thinks they can just pick up a pencil and draw well in their first attempt is just fooling himself. Like all things in any creative field--including musis or acting, one soon finds that it takes hours of daily practice to improve."
The most recent burning question asked:
Surely, Chris has had art displayed in many shows, and I'm just curious: has anything strange ever happened to him during an event?--Lisa, in L.A.
(The answer is now posted under the Q&A tab located to your left.)
The next burning question asked:
Chris! Being in the creative field, I'm sure you hang with other artists whenever given the chance. Do you and how often?--Brenda, in St. Louis
(Chris's answer will be posted in late November.)
Chris, just last year in June, had a highly successful one-man-show at the Old Fire House Art Gallery in Longmont, CO, which showcased well over 50 of his original pieces. He has since been asked when another show will take place and one has been scheduled. It will be held this coming December and running through approximately February, along with three other very capable artists at the Creative Framing and Art Gallery in Louisville, CO. Additional details will be posted as soon as they become available.
