I was listening to Elvis Presley's Always on my mind...For me nudes are interesting to paint, I’ve had people say my Ladies are gross, grotesque, fat and ugly, I’ve also had people comment that they are profoundly beautiful and I’ve sent them all over the world. I don’t want my ladies put in a box all looking the same just to please a small part of society.
They come in all shapes and sizes have lots of beautiful curves, voluptuous of indeterminate origin they can be arrogant but always have an inner glow about them, that radiates out and I try to capture that glow with every knife or brush stroke.
My ladies have always been with me, my earliest drawings were nudes, when I had my first gallery on Samui, I used to have lots of Thais walking by furtively peeping into my shop with lots of kids sneaking a look, all because of my nudes, Thais don’t normally do nudes.
COMMISSIONS: I would be delighted to create you a unique work, whatever size you need and / or colour palette.
This is a one of a kind artwork, created and painted by me. I always sign my work on the front of each painting, you will receive a certificate of authenticity with your painting.
I’ve had an exhibition but the best exhibition of all………those of my paintings hanging on walls at homes, offices and hotels of my valued clients.
My latest review; Egg Valentine! Where do I start? My first purchase off Artfinder and from Ta. This is what true customer service is about. It puts the U.K. to shame. Fantastic communication, brilliant packaging and what a delight of a piece of art. If you have any doubt about buying online art, then be assured buying from Ta was a truly pleasant experience. I changed my mind twice on how I wanted it - ready to hang or rolled. Despite this nothing was too much trouble. The piece was taken to the framer, he’s seen plenty of great art in 30 years... he too was blown away! Says it all really.
I’m over the moon that I have been handpicked by the editors of ArtFinder to be tipped for the top in 2018 as one to watch and invest in.
My work is sold to collectors worldwide, namely in, Australia, Belgium, Brazil ,Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong,Holland,Ireland, Italy,Monaco,Norway,Portugal, Peru,Sweden,Scotland,Switzerland,Singapore,South Korea,The United Kingdom,The United States of America, and of course Thailand.
