Chas Wilby


Hi there my name is Chas and I’m a retired old coal miner -74 years old at the given time – 2014- Working underground for 7-10 hours a day and sleeping about 8 hours I never saw much daylight – but on the few hours left to me- I used to be out on my old motorcycle or walking taking along with me an old Brownie camera that I had been given when I was twelve years old – I became a keen a photographer and its from these photos that I paint what I call my memories – (I am a little disabled but still manage to get out and about with the camera – although it be by car and I take most of my photos from the side of the road)
I have been painting for 14 years and am completely self taught artist – never having lessons – I mainly paint in watercolour or acrylic – sometimes oil or charcoal work.For me my paintings are my memories and I would like to share them with you
