Chad Becker, CPSA
Colored Pencil Artist
Chad is a professional designer, artist, and illustrator. His love for drawing developed when he was young. He has been a graphic designer for over 30 years, during that time he has crafted his skills to where they are today. Chad has been interested in American colonial history for most of his life, so he decided to specialize in drawing subjects from the 18th century. But he also enjoys drawing subjects that capture moments in time, both modern and historical. So, he is able to combine his love for history with his love of art. It’s a natural fit!
I participated in Portrait for NHS Heroes in the United Kingdom, which was started by portrait artist Tom Croft as a way to say thank you to all the everyday heroes risking their lives to care for COVID-19 patients. I felt truly honored to do a portrait of two best friends who work together as paramedics and shipped the original piece, “Best Friends” to the UK. It made it there without any damage and they loved it!
The duo’s quote for the online exhibit was extremely touching: “Myself and my crewmate have been swept away by this portrait; the artist has captured the two of us beyond belief. The portrait is a lasting memory of a pinnacle moment in our career and also symbolizes the constant support the two of us give each other.”
Let’s Start Something new
As a realistic portrait artist, I enjoy drawing subjects that capture moments in time, both modern and historical – providing families a drawing they will cherish for generations to come. Contact me if you are interested in commissioning a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork that captures your special moments, now and then.
