Artist Christopher Garvey paints his daughter's first violin. "It has the small tape on the fingerboard for her finger placement and the 'bow buddy' on the bow to assist in her bow hold," explains Christopher. "On the wall are some sheets of music from her lessons with some notes from the instructor. Something I will cherish, always."

Christopher Garvey

Columbia, South Carolina

Christopher Garvey focuses on the still life in his work, capturing objects like dishes and fruit with impressive clarity. He currently lives in South Carolina and finds inspiration in Renaissance and Baroque art. When it comes to technique, he enjoys the challenge of accurate drawing and the transparent qualities of oil paint. He has collected many books over the years, which he uses to improve his practice.
