News from the Studio
January: A busy start to the year with some good sales this month and my intention this year is to create more larger works in a variety of styles. I have 2 exhibitions to produce work for already booked and I'm starting to produce work for them.
December: A busy period of art sales as people buy gifts for their partners. Also I've been working on some new techniques and materials with a series of London images. I'll be continuing this theme for the first part of 2015.
November: This month is all about art exhibitions with three to prepare for in Edinburgh, Windsor & Surrey I have been hard at work building up my portflio of abstract wine themed paintings.
October: A busy month ahead preparing for the Windsor and Glasgow Contemporary art Fairs and the xmas exhibtion at the Corner Gallery in Carshalton.
September: This month already looks busy, as is usually the case in September. I have 3 exhibitions to prepare for before the end of the year and commissions to complete for clients. Lot's of London paintngs to contimue with as well as turning my creativity back to some fun abstract splash art. Good Luck to Class 5F in Central Park Primary School who are conducting a project based around my work, they should have fun.
August: This month I am expanding my portfolio of London Paintings, enjoying recreating the urban landscape which is our great capital city in photo realistic style.
July: Just beginning to work on some simple text based paintings, a great way to tell that special person in ypur life how you feel, every day of the year. They also make fantastic wedding or anniversary gifts.
Well I guess it was inevitable that two of my passions would coincide sooner or later - cycling meets art in this paintng of a cyclist at sunrise.
Early-Mid June: Busy working hard to build up a body of work for the Liverpool Contemporary Art Fair at the beginning of july. Lots of spring blossoms and abstract landscapes will be on display with the Forbes Art Gallery.
May: was another busy month where I completed four commissions for US & UK clients also some new wine themed abstracts and spring blossom works, experimenting with different colours. At the moment I'm working hard to create a body of work for the Liverpool Contemporary art fair at the beginning of July, not easy with all the normal amount of work to do and the candles are burning at both ends in the studio at the moment.
23rd April: This Easter, in addition to eating chocolate, I was busy creating a painting which reflects the ancient landscape which still exists around us. You'll find more examples of my commissions here - gallery of commissioned work.
12th April: The last 3 weeks have all been about commissions, completeing four for clients across the globe. I'm always happy to help you to recieve art which is tailored to your individual needs.
25th March: Art with a little humour - I had some fun today recycling an old laptop into art I don't suppose Ctrl Alt Del is going to help much here.
6th March: The first warm spring days have brough the blossom out here. Sometimes a theme and a style mix perfectly. Really enjoying painting these florals at the moment experimenting with different colours in controled splash art style.
Around 50% of my work is sold internationally & I'm regularly shipping artworks to the far reaches of the globe. Delivery to the USA usually takes around 3 days and 5-7 to the Far East everything is fully tracked and all shipping costs are included in my prices.
Paying attention to Quality
all of my art is finished to an extremely high standard, I put a lot of effort into finishing my pieces of art ready to hang in your home. It starts with the raw materials, I don't use ready made canvases, they're usually poor quality and by making my own I can create bespoke sizes to suit your individual needs. I use the best paint and finish all of my pieces around the sides so there is no need for framing. These are artworks that look great and will last.
I'm doing my bit for the trade balance at the moment with around 60% of my art sales going out of the UK, many of them to the USA, but also Malaysia, Israel, New Zealand & Finland.
