Chris Pedersen grew up on California’s Central Coast. He explored his beautiful surroundings, at the same time discovered his drawing talent and creative imagination. His art career started with a concentration of illustration and graphic design.

Currently Chris is making fine oil paintings although he continues to develop illustrations for his own children’s book story, which will likely inspire the youth to no end. Chris has maintained the youthful fantasy aspect of possibility. This dreamy realm fuels concepts which start as sketches and result in handsome well crafted paintings. “ Every time you go surfing its a new experience. You never know what’s going to come your way.” He compares this to his art, “When you sit down to draw or create something, you never know what’s going to come out.”
