Serendipidous

Demure (2)The phone rang yesterday and as I answered it, a womans voice asked  “Ann?” and I replied that no it wasn’t she had left this house four years ago. “Oh, do you have her new phone number?” she asked. I replied “Well, with due respect to whoever you are, if she hasn’t given it to you in four years, she possibly doesn’t want you to have it! But if you want to give me your details I’ll pass them on to her for you.” . “Fair enough” she said and gave me her number and explained why she was ringing, and I rang Ann straight away explaining what had happened. She thanked me and smiled at the way I had fielded the phone call. Then said “Oh, I’m glad you’ve rung!” and went on to say that she had asked me a few months ago if I would do a talk to her local WI group and was in the process of sorting out next years programme, and when suited me to do it. We made the date, agreed a price that we’re both happy with, and I asked how many would be there for the meeting – maybe 15 she thought, maybe less. Ok, and what exactly do you want me to talk about? “Oh, being an erotic artist!” she said “I’ve told them all about it!”. I smiled, ok, if that was what they want, that is what I’ll talk about! 🙂

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.
