Chuck Patten

Chuck was born in the Washington DC area and has lived in

Southern California and Seattle area. In 1997 he moved to

Lawrence Kansas.

While his formal training is in oil on canvas he is experimenting

with the properties of Acrylic on Glass. Using the acrylic medium

on glass allows for very vivid colors and expression. He enjoys

the interesting problems created by painting in reverse and on a

relatively non-porous surface.

Another area that is being explored is texture on canvas. He is using

many different substances to yield interesting results and evoke emotion.

As of late Chuck is experimenting with mixed media including Western and

Eastern watercolor techniques.
