June 2019 update. Artist's block, fortunately a very rare occurrence for me has occurred nonetheless. In fact, 2019 so far has been dire in terms of art production on my part. I gave up trying for a while and took myself inwards working on other aspects of my being. I hope the result will lead to me becoming a better person and a better artist. I've taken up the brushes again for a painting that I was commissioned to do and this has led to me going on to do another painting for my daughter's birthday, it won't be for sale obviously but I will post it into my 'Me at work' page together with the Commission. Here's hoping the remaining months of 2019 will lead to good things from every viewpoint.
2018 was a good year for my art all in all.
I started working on several new themes, one being cityscapes. I always find these very exacting and exhausting but I'm proud of some ot the results, especially the large canvases depicting Milan. For one of these, "I love Milano", I used a new technique combining photography with painting and the result is quite astounding so 2019 may see some more of that.
After selling the largest of my "women at the window" series, in December I completed another, "Woman at the window with cat" and have decided to continue this series into 2019 as it gives me so much pleasure as well as being a favourite among my collectors.
Another series "The Hatters" that started back in 2016 sold out completely but towards the end of last year I painted "Men in Hats" which then led to "Women in Hats" and I am now in the middle of another depicting bowler hats and men from the world of economy. So this series too is still very much ongoing.
To make browsing easier, I have divided some paintings into Collections. If you look to the left of my storefront, you'll see "Shop sections". The first are Artfinder default collection titles, but after "Recently added" you can see the titles of my own Collections and click on the ones you might want to look at, 'Ballerinas' is always a favourite.
Thank you so much dear Art lover, without you, I couldn't exist.
My art is all about people. Even when no figure can be seen in a painting, The human being with all his/her moods and eccentricities, fragility and strength, is still very present. Where would we be without other people? Interacting with others is a necessity and I find myself drawn to depicting this interaction.
Being an artist for me means being on a never-ending learning curve. You can never put the brush down and say, “Right, I’ve mastered it”. You have to continually strive to improve and refine your technique. Sometimes it can be very frustrating and then one day, click, you’ve moved along the curve a little bit more and the sun is shining down on you.
Thanks to Artfinder and the Internet, I now have collectors all over the world, some of whom I am in contact with on a regular basis. I'll receive a message in my AF message box from a person who bought something from me some time ago, asking if I could do something similar for a friend. Or someone will write simply to say how much they admire a certain painting - it makes this virtual gallery so much more personal and up close. Whatever I do, I need to know that my painting touches the hearts of others. This alone is enough to keep me going.
I accept commissions, so if you think my style is suitable for something you have in mind, please don’t hesitate to use the ‘Contact’ button (you'll find it when clicking on any image and scrolling down), I’d love to hear and discuss together the best piece of art to suit your requirements.
I hope you enjoy browsing my online store here in Artfinder.
Ah... by the way, I always include a little surprise gift for my collectors.
