What’s in an image?

Ever since I started this blog, some months ago, I knew I wanted an image on my profile (well, I AM an artist, after all!). But what image to have, was the problem. It had to be the right one, and thought about in some depth. I’d looked with interest to see what other images people used, to describe themselves – some delightful parts of their bodies, usually some sexy footwear for the erotic ladies, or a succinct image that described them in some way. But how to find one that suited what I advertise to the world? And then, as is often the case, it dawned on me that it was quite easy! I’m an erotic artist, therefore the image should, quite obviously, be something erotic I’d painted (Yes I know I’m stating the obvious, but it sometimes takes a while to get to that point!). So, here it is, the unveiling of the image that succinctly describes me – my hand painting a pierced female nipple. It had to be pierced of course, because a nipple is just a nipple, until its pierced. Then its loads more erotic! And therefore far more suitable for a female erotic artist!

So, what do you think?

I've been an artist all of my life, and my paintings now hang on walls in Europe, USA and Canada. I'm working on getting them on the other continents! My wide range of artwork has been exhibited nearer to home in the East Midlands, with the Guild of Erotic Artists at Beaumont Hall Studios in Hertfordshire, and at "Erotica", Olympia, London. I have also been featured alongside my work in the Guild of Erotic Artists book (volume 2). I love to create dramatic interest in my pictures, whether it’s to paint an unusual landscape, or just to utilise dramatic lighting in my figure drawings or strong colour in my animal portraits. Delighting in the spontaneous tendencies of watercolour adds an interesting and distinctive look to my paintings, some of which are purposefully ambiguous, enabling the viewer to use their own interpretation of my artwork. I also love to hide images, and humour within my paintings, whether it’s a secret message, or an erotic couple hidden within a landscape, or even an erotic landscape where the couple are camouflaged as the features of the land itself. I am equally happy painting in oils, acrylics or watercolours and love to draw with pencil or ink. I have also developed the very effective method of drawing using white pencil on black card which creates dramatic pictures by just picking out where the light catches the body and leaving the rest of the image to the imagination, in darkness. I can also utilise many different styles, whether it is realistic, abstract, surrealistic, erotic, fantasy or camouflage art where something is hidden within the painting. I'm just passionate about my art, whatever I paint! But, it doesn't matter how many landscapes or pet portraits I paint, its always the erotic stuff that people are interested in! I started blogging to share some of the strange conversations I have with the people I meet. But its evolved into far more than that now.

    I find the symbolism of the paintbrush tickling the nipple to be so appropriate!
