Childress majored in art and film at Sacramento State University where he had the opportunity to study with several of California’s most creative painters and film makers such as Carlos Villa, Robert Nelson, Gladys Nilsson, Frank LaPena, Phil Weidman, Bill Allan, and D.L. Thomas. In 1974 he received a baccalaureate degree in art.

In recent years Childress has concentrated on abstract painting in acrylic. His style is usually described as Abstract Expressionism but is often hard to categorize.

Taz Childress currently maintains his painting studio and residence in California’s Santa Cruz mountains.
