THE PAPA GALLERY
Hey there! I’m Chad.
I’ve always been passionate about the arts, from musical performances, writing, to painting. Painting especially is a peaceful activity for me. It is incredibly fulfilling to see a piece evolve and eventually (hopefully) turn into something I or someone else will love.
Mostly I’m self-taught, however my dad, who is an amazingly talented artist in his own right, has been a great mentor and motivation to me throughout the years. People say to paint what you love, and that’s what I strive to do. I’m fond of people and animals, as well as all kinds of geeky stuff. Regardless of the subject, I try to put the same emotion into my work, primarily through the use of color. I’d describe my artwork as intense and vivid, while still giving respect to the subject.
One thing I always tell my daughter is that she doesn’t have to be perfect – to turn those mistakes into “Happy Accidents,” and that is what I try to do in my artwork.
If you’d like to see more of my work, you can find me on Facebook (HappyAccidentGallery) and online at happyaccidentgallery.com
And I absolutely DO accept commissions!
