Local Artist


Christian Goddard  was born in Barbados in 1950 and emigrated with his family to England in 1955.

After studying at Dewsbury and Batley Art College, he became a graphic designer working in advertising.

Through the years, due to time limitations, Christian has only been able to paint as and when he could.

He even incorporates his own dog, Lottie, into some of his paintings.



I have been very impressed with his work – and I think you will be too. 

Chris is truly talented, working not only in oils, but in pencil sketches which seem to catch the very essence of his subject.

He now has the opportunity to concentrate on the thing he loves the best – his artwork.

Cyda SketchHe works from a selection of photographs of your beloved pet(s) and selects the one which he feels will best show the subject to advantage.

The composition is agreed with you before work starts.

His pencil sketches are affordably priced from £25.00.

Chris also does other subjects, including children and other family members.

Chris did this picture for me of Cyda. It sits proudly in my hall.
