Mulling ideas forming very interesting shapes

Mulling ideas forming very interesting shapes

On New Years Eve, whilst quietly sitting with a cup of tea and mince pie and in the lull before I got ready for a noisy and lively New Years Eve party, I had a thought, one of those silvery ones that is at the back of creative peoples minds all the time, and I brought it forward to add it to another one, that quickly attached itself to another.. feeling the rising creative excitement of a good idea, I thought I’d write it in my artist note book, and as my pencil skimmed over the surface of the paper, writing the ideas down, I found those silvery ideas had nicely joined together to form a thread of a very interesting idea. One that I first thought of at some point last year, I can’t remember the exact time, but I knew it was a good one that I would paint at some time.. and as my pencil wrote out the ideas, more ideas came to me, as to how I would create the set of fascinating paintings.. I know the concept, and the collection of paintings I will do, and how I will hide images within them, since that is what I love to do the most, but what I haven’t decided on yet, is the titles, either of the paintings, nor of the collective title that they will fall under.. I am mulling ideas together for the collective title, but want to think of all the possible options before I settle on the best one… 

But the subject matter will incorporate three of my favourite subjects, into one painting… an exciting one, for me as the artist, which will I know, excite others I know…..

When the time is right, I will sit down and start to draw out ideas, and that is when the images will come to life…but until then, the ideas are building in my head, ready…


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.
