Random facts

Thanks Lucy for giving me a Amazing Blogger Award. MMmm… random facts about me…. Ok then, they are:

1. I once got out of a plane at 12,000 feet, without a parachute, and survived.
2. I’ve been in the same room as a black maned lion with no bars between us.
3. I’ve seen the sun rise over an eerily silent and deserted Machu Picchu.
4. I’ve been to the exact point where the Indian Ocean meets the Atlantic Ocean.
5. I’ve waltzed across Tiannamen Square.
6. I’ve eaten a silver service dinner in the open desert at Ayers Rock, by starlight.
7. I’ve had three tarantulas crawling over my shoulders and breasts and was more interested by my companions reactions than the spiders themselves.

And since I think it’s customary to nominate three others for this award. I nominate Racy Redhead (cos she’ll have naughty fun with this!), Nitebyrd (cos she’s just finding her feet, and has loads of interesting things to tell the world) and Indigo (who just loves to shock and be wicked). Over to you, girls!

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.
