Chip is a Lexington artist and sculptor that met Dennis Quaintance in the mid-1980’s when Dennis was planning the first Lucky 32 restaurant in Greensboro. Dennis hired Chip to sketch architectural rendering of the building, as well as paint an art-deco mural for the inside.
Since then, Chip has had a creative roll in all subsequent Quaintance projects, including the murals and portrait in the O. Henry. Chip now has a original piece of art in every room of The Proximity.
