Why these people matter
I received my teaching credential nearly forty-five years ago. It was not easy. I earned my AA and then worked and saved for two years before going back to complete my BA degree and earn my teaching credential. Even so, there was not enough money, so I spent the last semester living in my car.
I was born in south of Poland. I graduated from the Faculty of Conservation and Restoration of Works of Art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow.
Working as paintings restorer I have been in close contact with the paintings of Old Masters and the way they create their paintings. I try to use this observation in my paintings but there are still so many secret in technology I can’t understand.
The greatest inspiration for me is the period of renaissance specially Flemish.
Always striving to grow as an artist
My name is Charles “Chuck” Gilliam. I am an artist currently living in American Fork, Utah, having moved to Utah from Texas. Born into a military family has offered me an opportunity to travel and see much of this country. These travels afforded me a great source of materials on which I have based my illustrative works. Having three children of my own, has only added to my resources for painting. Plus, many years of working as a professional illustrator and graphic designer, I have found himself in a position of determining images to tell a story.
I retired from a career in law enforcement after 36 years of service. When I was recruited my Mother told the recruiting officer during a home interview that I was too sensitive to be a police officer. As a Nurse she was well aware of the dark side of humanity that policing exposes one to and she was not happy about my pursuit of such a life. The recruiting officer told her that what the world needed was police officers with more sensitivity and compassion and it sounded like I was just what he was looking for. So it began, and my Mother was right, but I never quit there were just too many people that needed help.
