Chris believes “Family, horses, rodeo and art have been the driving passions of his life. I love what I do for a living and hope others can see that through the work I have created.
‘’I have been blessed with a great passion. I really love what I do and hope others see that through the works I have created. When you love what you are doing the real reward is in the experience of doing it. One of the best things in working with bronze it is such a strong, durable, and permanent medium. In the end it is not about how many years you lived in this world but what you leave behind that truly matters. All artist want to live on in their work. Knowing my work will be standing in the sun long after I’m gone for future generations to experience and enjoy is extremely rewarding. Chris Navarro

Working in many different styles and mediums, oil, watercolor, acrylic, painting, cast paper, wood arts sculpture and jewelry. Landscape painting, wildlife art, western bronze sculpture with a mixture of contemporary fine art and realism.I love what I do for a living and hope others can see that through the work I have created.

Your experiences have everything to do with your beliefs and how you see the world. As in art and life, if what you create is real, and if it’s done with genuine emotions, there will always be others who will want to experience and relate to that power.

The creation of monuments is extremely time consuming and labor intensive, requiring an initial design, creating a clay model, then casting it in bronze through the lost wax method. Sculpting is what I do for a living, but I don’t ever plan on retiring.I’ve found something I really love to do and I hope others can see that through the works I’ve created.

In life the most worthwhile thing in art is seeing what is in someone else’s heart.
