Hello, everyone. Welcome to our program.
Today, we are fortunate to have a special guest with us.
Some of you may have heard of him before. He's an artist.
His works have received many prizes and have been shown in over one hundred exhibitions across the country — Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, to name just a few.
His name is Chris Cucksy. So Chris, tell us a bit about yourself.
Well, I was born in Springfield, Missouri, and grew up in Kansas.
I didn't come from a family with wealth or position, but I did manage to get a master's degree in fine arts.
When did you first start to make art?
And what was the turning point in your life that made you an artist?
I always liked drawing as early as I can remember, so right from then, I knew what I was going to be: an artist.
What is it that always inspires you to create?
Nature is the biggest inspiration. I'm always inspired by things of beauty and harmony.
