Chuck's family immigrated to the United States from Poland at the age of fourteen, where he completed high school. Chuck received his formal art education from the American Academy of Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago, after which he studies with renowned marine artist Charles Vickory.

In the following years he won many awards in local and regional art exhibitions. After a painting trip to the Rocky Mountains, he moved to Colorado.

In pursuit of artistic quality, Chuck devotes all his time to painting on location or in his studio. His lush representational style of painting follows the best tradition of American Art.
