Blog birthday – Nine years !

Blog birthday – Nine years !

Little did I think nine years ago that I would still be writing my blog, happily chatting about art, life and how they are intertwined… so many years later.

I’ve written about so many things, introduced my paintings as I’ve created them, and shared the important and sometimes funny conversations I’ve had. I still love writing it, and sharing this part of me with whoever wants to read about it.

And I’ve made some important blog friends a long the way, in this country and the USA and also created some gorgeous paintings through those friendships. So here to celebrate that, I am showing you some of them……  “Hot Stuff”, “Fur coat and no knickers”, the erotic landscape “Tree of life” and “Living Flame”. Three of these are currently hanging on walls in America, and one in England.

So Happy Birthday Blog, and thanks for it being such an important part of my life. Along with my art. Hot stuffFur coat and no knickerstree of lifeLiving Flame 1

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.
