How to turn my head

Sitting in the sunshine with my fella at the weekend, having my second mug of tea of the day I contemplated the busy goings on around me. Watching the customized car show take over a venue that I know of as quiet and peaceful, was something of an assault on the senses. Car’s revving, music pounding, boy racers, and glamour girls pouting aplenty. I was a fly on the wall of something that I was on the peripheries of and didn’t need to do anything, but sit and watch it all unfold before me.

Then, suddenly, my head shot up, and mouth fell open, as my eyes took in the person a few yards away. I know that face, but I knew she wasn’t a friend, and for a couple of seconds I thought she must be a celebrity I’d seen on the telly as she was so glamorous, with her immaculate make-up and sexy red clinging maxi-dress revealing her feminine curves. And then, it all clicked into place. And I leapt out of my seat and went over to her, as fast as I could, with a huge smile on my face, and as I got to her I said “Do you remember me?” and she looked at me and said straight away “Yes! But I can’t remember your name” and I smiled and said “I can’t remember your name either!” “Kirsty” she said, with a smile, and I said “Jackie!” as we hugged and kissed cheeks. I asked what she was doing there that day, and realised that as she’s a dancer that she would be performing for the boy racers – sexy women and fast cars go together, don’t they! She asked what I was doing there, and I said I had some of my artwork on the walls, and straight away she said “The Fannies?” and I shook my head ruefully and said “Noooo, unfortunately not”. “Why not????!” she asked incredulously, and I said “Because the managers wife doesn’t like them” and she said “But they’d be perfect” and I smiled and nodded in agreement, and said that at least I’d got other erotic artwork there. I knew she’d understand. We had a few minutes chat together then she had to go, and we said goodbye with a smile to each other. I sat back down on my chair and smiled to myself at seeing her again.  We’re both women who work in ther erotic world, and I like the fact that sometimes people I know surface in unexpected places.

The last time I’d seen her was at Erotica in 2008 (infact she’s actually featured in the first few minutes of this video link I’ve just found from 2009!)  when she’d been on the stand next to mine, she promoting the dance troupe that she was part of, and me, well, I was there because I’d painted the first of the Fantasy Fannies, and I wanted the world to see them, and who better than the erotic clientele of the Erotica show at Olympia, London!

That’s how she knows me. And I know her for being a delightfully nice person, as well as an absolutely gorgeous looking woman. It was good to see her again, and maybe we’ll bump into each other again sometime we women of the erotic world.

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.
