Chris Rankin is a man of many talents with a passion to create. He has been creating "stuff" since his mother first gave him the various tools to do so. As a child, anything he could get his hands on was fair game to be part of his creative exploration. Whether it was balsa wood, a simple crayon or oil pastel. If it could be drawn, painted, nailed, molded or glued together... something fun was going to be created. Fast forward fifteen years…Chris moves to Ohio and graduates from the Columbus College of Art and Design…fast forward again. Twenty five years later and Chris has found himself yet another interesting tool to be part of his creative toolkit. This time it comes straight from Mother Nature. Beeswax and fire. Two of the most natural substances know to man. Chris has been featured in numerous exhibits in the Central Ohio region. He is part of many corporate and private collections including the Columbus Convention Center as well as the Columbus Hilton collection. Chris is a past board member of the Ohio Art League.
