BIO

CVL ART (Chris Van Loan Sr.)

 I am a painter, musician and filmmaker. Painting is my meditation and passion.

Early in my painting career I heard a voice in my head tell me that I should, "..never be afraid of what the paint may or may not reveal...". In my purest artistic moments, I follow this advice and intuitively paint what I feel. I also use techniques and principles that I've learned while studying Reiki and Tai Chi to relay a feeling of movement in my art.
