Charles Wallis has been producing fine art since his first studies in high school. He is a graduate of the Baylor University art program as well as the Famous Artists Schools correspondence course during high school.
After college he opened a graphic design studio beginning his career as a professional artist and taught graphic design courses at Baylor University. He grew and developed the design studio servicing clients across the country for nearly 15 years. He focuses his attention on portraits, wildlife and southwestern landscapes using watercolor, oils or acrylics.
In 2008 he showed three of his paintings in the 10th Annual International Landscape Exhibit with the Upstream People Gallery.
November 1, 2009 five of his paintings were shown in the 11th Annual Painting, Drawing, Photography and Print International Exhibition. These painting are Buffalo Spring,High Meadow Grizzly, Land of Enchantment, Red Appaloosa and Red Shawl.
March 6 to April 18 "Buffalo Spring...coming of age" will be hanging in the juried exhibition Western Spirit Art Show at the Old West Museum in Cheyenne Wyoming.
While versatile in many forms because of his design studio experience his first love is realism in paintings of all subjects. Charles is a native Texan but has lived in Arizona as well which has influenced his work.
