ABOUT CHAS BLACKFORD
As a lifelong resident of the San Francisco Bay Area I hope my art reflects my appreciation and gratitude for having been so fortuitously placed here in California. I am currently a resident of Sonoma and work in a wonderful studio situated in a small artistic enclave set in an idyllic botanical garden in nearby El Verano.
It has taken many years for me to realize my childhood intention to become an artist. Life definitely got in the way, but it was a life spent involved in many interesting and varied occupations. Each and all of those endeavors continue to influence and contribute to my work today, and I am grateful that I never abandoned my interest in all things art - whether viewing it or making it.
