Interests and Personality

Biographyhomepage: http://champlinart.net Champlin showed an interest in drawing very early in life and began by drawing his youthful passion of horses at the tender age of 11. Champlin has been painting professionally since 1992. Early works were predominately done in pastels. After about 1997, he now works predominately in oils, yet the youthful spirit of his work remains the same. Now, he prefers portraiture and emotional scenes of the human bond and of the human condition. It is this energy and emotion that binds the subject with the canvas and forms the symphonic nature of his work. It is the merging of the moment onto the canvas. A symphysis of subject and form. Champlin boldly uses colour and line to express his artistic vision. The colour is weaved together to form a tapestry. Bold lines give a feeling of motion and energy. His works are the passion and energy of life and the fluidity of which life entails.
Interestshorses, art, outdoor stuff, paranormal, medicine, whatever my son happens to be doing I find interesting usually
Musicgeez, pretty much anything. . . very eclectic tastes. Music influences art so much so have to be careful what I listen to when I paint. I really like some of the contemporary music lately, very fun although I have a bad memory for names so really can't remember any of the artist names off the bat. . .
Filmsthe Illusionist I thought was outstanding and oo I loved Bridget Jones's Diaries. I love a good romance and tend to stay away from action pictures. I like happy endings and think it is a cop out to kill the main character at the end.
TelevisionStuck on Nicklodeon mostly. . . I really like Sabrina and love Ned's Declassified and am a closet Spongebob fan. Ghosthunters on Sci-fi is really well done and enjoy that. Love the Simpsons.
BooksUmberto Eco and Edward Abby are by far my two favorite authors.
Heroesmy wife is my biggest hero truely.
