Of course I can

Friends came to visit last Friday night, I’ve known them for a while but it was the first time they had actually come to the house and it was so lovely to welcome them in and have a meal and a drink with them. I asked if they’d like to see around the house as everyone always seems to say yes to that question and indeed they did too. As I showed them around …….this is the lounge, we’ve done a lot of work on it this year and yes these are the paintings I’ve done, yes they’re all mine, this is the landing, this is my studio, this is the working painting I did for a woman in California, this is a naked landscape I did for a woman in Dorset who wanted a painting over her bed that her 4 year old son wouldn’t realise was a couple having sex, this is the painting I did from life in oils of a woman friend of mine, this is a watercolour I did of two tigers in a snowstorm, this is a pencil drawing I did of an old man, this is an erotic painting I did for my husband, and yes we do have a fabulous view from here looking down into the valley, I did that painting too of the woman of a naked woman on a red sofa, this is a painting I did of a woman

friend of mine depicting the universe in her hair, this is a magical painting I did of two unicorns in the forest, yes I did paint that picture in the kitchen its of the grounds of Hever Castle in Kent…..

Of course I was going to say a bit as the couple had the tour of the house, the paintings are a massive part of me and the special ones I have kept as my own, or if they have been a big commission for a client I have done my own copy of it to keep and enjoy it on my own walls or use it as a promotional piece if people ask what sort of things I paint.

Most people who know me know that I am an artist. But they don’t know what sort of an eclectic artist I am until they see my paintings.

But when we got back to the kitchen after the tour the guy said to me that he realised that I was just the artist he was looking for to do a painting of him and his girlfriend… and he mentioned a photo he had somewhere of the pair of them, and would look it out to show me…

Oooh… how exciting, the possibility of a commission..for good friends..

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.
