My name is Chris Shingler. I was born Oct. 10, 1958. I have lived in Washington County all my life. I became a born-again Christian at the age of 26 and married at age 29 to a loving wife, Kathy from Portage, PA. We have three sons, Grady, Jeb and Colton.
I began oil painting in August of 2001. I Hope you enjoy my work. God bless.
