Fifteen ways to distinguish an erotic artist from an ordinary one

  1. 1   When you say you’ve been drawing a pussy, other people just *know* you don’t mean of the feline variety.
  2. 2   Its quite normal for you to be in the company of virtual strangers, who also happen to be completely and unabashedly naked.
  3. 3   When in the company of naked people you don’t ever look below eye level when you talk directly to them.
  4. 4    When in the company of naked people, you never feel embarrassed, or make the naked ones feel embarrassed.
  5. 5    You have conversations of  a medical nature where people tell you very personal things that normally they’d only tell their doctor. But they tell   you that because they know they can trust you.
  6. 6    You keep other people secrets for them, as sometimes their families and friends have no idea of the things they’ve posed for infront of an artist.
  7. 7   You fulfil other peoples sexual fantasies by the fact you draw them doing erotic things.
  8. 8    You are used to hearing the response ” A what?!” whenever you state your job description. Just before they ask for your website address.
  9. 9    When a male erection happens unexpectedly and the owner of it is more embarrassed than the artist, because the artist has seen it all before. 
  10. 10  You have close and personal conversations about the other persons sex lives because in some ways you are treated as a sex therapist.
  11. 11   Creative type people from the other side of the world ring you to talk about sensual artistic matters because they want to help with the art process as it’s different from the type of  career they have, and yet they have an affinity to it.
  12. 12   You have a stronger bond with your collectors because they feel more connected to you through the cement of  their shared sexual fantasies depicted in artform.
  13. 13   The erotic artists open-mindedness is refeshing.
  14. 14   It opens doors to another world beyond the vanilla.
  15. 15   And best of all – it’s more fun!

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.
