My bio differs greatly from what I see most artists use in that I have not kept a list of the places I've been, the work I've sold over the years, or where I've sold it from. I spent most of my youth and that fuzzy time before grey hair roaming North and South America.
I have lived mostly off commissions.
I have left copious amounts behind when it was time to check out new places, never worrying about it as I could always make more and it surely would be better next time anyway. Somewhere in my 50's a rather well known realist suggested I pick a place and stay for a while so that word of mouth could build. I did and as it turns out he knew what he was talking about. I know I should pay more attention to business but word of mouth commissons keep me fed and in paint if not other sweet nothings.
I have been drawing since I was 3 is what I was told. I do not remember that but then neither do I have any memory of not drawing and painting. Mostly I just draw and paint, read, sail, play chess, and keep regular attendance at the Theater of the Absurd. If there is other information one would want to have then just drop me a line by email and I will answer. There is more info on my web site charlespeck.com though it is not what anyone could consider provenance. Just some travel, growing up, & schooling info.
