At Art on Fire our instructors have a passion for what they do! They love art and love to have fun! As a matter of fact, you might say that they are trained to HAVE FUN! Let's meet them!



Artist | Teacher

Starting my artistic journey in 2007, the desire to create art that I attained soon became an unyielding obligation to myself to explore the inner mechanism of my creative consciousness. From small sketches to large scale projects, my art is a highly-personal reflection of myself.

I’ve been lucky enough to have participated in many collaborative projects, as well as exhibiting in a solo capacity, which has solidified my reputation in the art world. If you would like to find out more about my process, get in touch.



Artist | Teacher | Founder/Owner

He started his artist journey after receiving an acrylic paint set from his grandmother one Christmas morning in 1990. Chad began using different techniques and mediums in his early years growing up as an aspiring young artist. When he got to high school he become the president of the art club until graduation in 1996. He was also president of his college art club as well until he graduated from Lon Morris College in 2002 with an Associate of Arts Degree. In 2008 he went back to college to study painting at the University of A&M Corpus Christi where he crafted his skills in oil painting.

Chad received a call from his best friend Terry in 2004 changing the direction of his art. This pairing has allowed for Chad's art to reach people with God's love through several mission trips all around the world.

Chad began teaching art in 2015 after he founded Art on Fire in Athens, TX.
