MORE ABOUT CHRIS FELIX
Chris grew up on the west side of Cincinnati with a family that loved baseball. His parents and grandmother were die-hard Reds fans who enjoyed listening to Marty and Joe every night. Chris's older brother, Tom, had such a natural athletic ability that he was scouted by the Pittsburgh Pirates before being drafted for the Vietnam war. So it's no surprise that Chris began playing at a very young age and fell in love with the game.
Chris attended Elder High School where another passion was quickly ignited. A dedicated and observant art teacher noticed Chris's talent for painting and encouraged him to continue spending time honing his skills. Taking that advice to heart has resulted in Chris's intricate attention to detail in every painting he creates and for what he is most known.
Chris has been commissioned by and his work has been exhibited in museums and galleries from New York to California.
