Ben Childers

Ben began oil painting and drawing in school, but by the early 1990s, he  began exploring glass as a creative medium. He recalls that he started with stained glass because "I was seeking an activity I could share with my younger son."

As inevitably happens with children, Ben's son grew up, and moved on.  As a result,  Ben's work with stained glass waned. Yet, his years as a glass artist have definitely influenced his painting, and many admirers of his extraordinary abstract paintings note the glassy texture and flow of his acrylic compositions.

While finding inspiration in the quiet woods surrounding his home, as well as the creeks, rivers and nearby Chesapeake Bay, Ben explains that art ultimately is a personal experience, and different for each individual.


Ben lives and paints in Virginia's Upper Peninsula, on a wooded hillside nestled between the Rappahannock and Potomac rivers, and near the Chesapeake Bay where he and his wife sail whenever possible.
