Christopher began painting at the age of 11, when his mother Hannelore gave him a box of paints with his name engraved on it. He has been painting ever since. In 2009 he began a series of painted portraits called "Faces of Change: Leaders in the Fight for LGBTQ Equality." As of now, over 50 people have sat for portraits. Even though Christopher prefers painting portraits and nudes, occasionally he'll be inspired to paint a landscape or a still life.
