About Chris Gorey


Christopher Gorey was born and educated in the United States and graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art. After numerous painting excursions to Atlantic Canada he moved to the small coastal village of Ingonish on Cape Breton Island to take up painting full time. He still resides there with his wife Lynn. The Goreys have two children and three grandchildren.

Mr. Gorey works in oil and watercolour. His paintings, which reflect a feeling of light and texture, depict the people and landscape of his adopted Cape Breton in addition to other areas of Eastern Canada.
