ABOUT THE ARTIST

_____

Chad W Greene is an award winning artist living in the US. Chad specializes in both traditional and digital content/artwork.

 

He was born in Sandusky, Ohio and lived there until he was 24, before moving to California to pursue a career in the entertainment industry, working on video games and feature films as an Artist (various roles).  During the past 26 yrs, Chad has been working a full-time day job as an Artist/Art Director -- but spends his nights and weekends pursuing his true passion -- which is Fine Art and the creation of it.  

 Recently, Chad has been focused on the pursuit of becoming a landscape artist - working

Although his day job 'pays the bills' (and is something that he still enjoys), Chad dreams of the day when he can dedicate 100% of his time and efforts towards being a 'full-time' artist. He loves being outdoors (and calls it his 'Art therapy' from being indoors and surrounded by computers all day!) and his passion is to capture the outdoor landscape and its ever-changing light and beauty. 

 

He currently lives in the Seattle, WA area, with his wife, Janine and their 2 kids.
