C.W. Mundy was born (1945) and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, U.S.A. He graduated with a Fine Art Degree and a Secondary Education Teaching Degree from Ball State University (IN.) and then later worked on a Masters of Fine Art at Long Beach State (CA).
From an early age, Mundy demonstrated a propensity for drawing and athletics. In 1978, he combined his love for art and sports and worked as a sports illustrator for over a decade.
In the early 1990’s, Mundy took on the challenge of painting in the impressionistic style, “en plein air” and “from life”. This painting style led Mundy to a series of European painting trips, and also frequent “plein air” trips to the coasts and harbors of the U.S.A.
Mundy was invited in 2003 to Master Signature Membership in the national Oil Painters of America. In 2007, he achieved Master Status in The American Impressionist Society.
In 2013, Mundy was invited to Signature Membership in the prestigious California Art Club.
He was honored in 2015 to be elected as Fellow in the American Society of Marine Artists.
