Remember me?

Remember me?

This week I had an email from someone whose name I didn’t recognise who explained that a few years ago I did a pencil sketch of his sisters house in Repton for him as a gift and he saw the drawing recently in her house and he is soon moving to a new house in a new area and wondered if he sent me some photos if I could draw his new property for him..

It was then that I recognised his name, and who he was… and with a big smile I sent him an email in reply…

…..Yes I remember doing the pencil drawing of 96 High Street, Repton for you as a Christmas gift (2014) for your sister – you amused me very much as you gave me about 9 days notice to do it in time for you, and your sister was very suspicious about the strange woman taking photos of her house! I’ve attached the drawing I did for you. And, of course I would be interested in doing something else for you regarding your idea for a new drawing. Send me the photos and tell me what you want doing.….

He replied straight away and agreed it was the same drawing we were talking about, and explained it will be later in April that he’ll want the drawing done, and he’ll sort out some photos. So I look forward to doing it for him when he sends me them. .

It was good to hear from him again, he doesn’t live in the same part of the country as his sister, and I was delighted to be asked at the time to do the drawing of his sisters house for him. But he only asked me 9 days before Christmas, and in that time I had to go and take the photos of her house in Repton (Derbyshire), do the drawing, and post it in time for him to give it to her when he saw her over Christmas. I was very proud of myself doing it in time for him, and for her. He obviously likes the drawing for him to be asking me to do one for him too…

I love being an artist….

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.
