Bit by bit I’ll get to you

A big fan of mine appeared in my life yesterday for another reason other than art and mentioned in passing that he’d recently been working in Ethiopia. I know he works abroad a lot in many countries, and I know he tells all of his many male work colleagues to look at my website whilst they’re out there for the duration. Lots of lonely men looking at erotic art – its as good a reason as any to look at my website! But the guy made me laugh out loud when he said that he was recently in a local hobby craft shop and saw one of those “paint by numbers” pictures hanging up. He was across the shop from it, so was looking at it from some feet away. His immediate thought was that it was one of my “fantasy fannies” images. And he smiled to himself and thought “Go girl!!!!” On closer inspection………………………….. he realised ……it was ……..a ……woodland scene. That made me laff!!!! A woodland scene!!!! Tee hee!!!! But REALLY wonderful that he *thought* he’d seen one of my fantasy fannies! That he was reminded of my art because of it, was great. You see….bit by bit……..my art gets into your sub-conscious. You’ll start seeing what I see …………images hidden in other images. Faces in clouds. Unicorns in woodlands. Dragons in patterns in the sand. Fantasy fannies in paint by numbers…………….secret messages in my paintings…………..

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.

    it's wonderful when your work seems to hold up and people know it as your work.

    though an artist art works is an expression of the artist…it fab when someone gets what you are doing in that art world.

    Spiky – Yes, it is, but it takes a while and a lot of hard work to get to that point. And it surely is fab when someone gets what you're doing in the art world!!!!
