Painting with words

Painting with words

I have an important painting waiting for me that is aching to be finished, and I am full of desire to complete. But I can’t touch it, not yet. I have another sort of painting to do before I can re-start work on it, but this one is a painting of words. Actually its two paintings of words but the second one I have done before, but the first one is new. The second one is a talk I’ve been booked to do for a local women’s group – the WI again! Obviously they like the idea of being shocked traumatised intrigued entertained by a female erotic artist and I am more than happy to comply! 🙂

But before I make my plans for that one I have a write up to do this week for a new readership for me about being an erotic artist. So it’s a subject I know loads about, its about me, and about what I do, and I don’t have to do anything other than write it, but its the angle I want to come in on that is requiring the thinking!


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.
