Chuck Marshall (Charles W. Marshall, Jr.) was born in Wilmington, Ohio, on December 7, 1957. The small town of New Antioch, about 7 miles outside of Wilmington, became home to Chuck, his one brother, five sisters, mother and father.
The surrounding area was known for its agriculture - mainly hogs and corn. So Chuck grew up working farms and spending time in his father's construction trade, but Chuck knew he wanted to do something different with his life - he knew he was going to be an artist from a very early age. He would spend hours each day sketching images of fields, hillsides, and animals that he would see while roaming the countryside.
He studied one year at the Art Institute of Cincinnati before studying at the California Art Institute in Southern California. His art career includes many years as an illustrator and graphic designer as well as his fine art.
Chuck has been invited to and participated in many national plein air events as a guest artist, such as Olmsted Plein Air Invitational, Atlanta Georgia, Door County, Wisconsin, Great American Paint Out in the Apalachicola/ Panhandle Florida area, En Plein Air Texas, Paint The Peninsula in Washington, Wayne Plein Air, PA, and Finger Lakes Plein Air, where he recently won best of show, and Cape Ann Plein Air.
His work has been published numerous times in International Artist Magazine, American Artist Magazine, American Art Collector, Fine Art Connoisseur, and Plein Air Magazine.
Chuck has won numerous local and national awards, and has also performed as a judge in many juried art shows.
His work can be seen at the Charles Fine Art Gallery, Gloucester MA, the Eisele Gallery, Cincinnati, OH, and Hayley Gallery, New Albany, OH.
