To be honest, I just like to paint stuff!!
Tiny little stage sets, huge storybook style panels, quirky house portraits (and a larger than life painted fox called ‘The Fox in Socks’)
3d ILLUSTRATIONS / Pen & Wash ILLUSTRATIONS / Acrylic ILLUSTRATIONS
Art and Illustration CV:
Having experimented with pastels, watercolours and acrylics, my weapon of choice for the past 10 years has been an ink and wash technique, for lots of colour and detail. Painted over multiple layers which are spaced apart for added depth.
I've been lucky enough to exhibit and sell my artwork in regional galleries including Sock in Loughborough and the New Walk Gallery in Leicester. I've taken part in the Loogabarooga Children's illustration festival a couple of times [with writing partner Gary Place] and created 6 foot wide picture book designs for the walls of the wonderful Rainbows Hospice
I was also grateful to have been selected to take part in the Fosse Foxes Art Trail to coincide with the opening of Fosse Park West in April 2021. The Trail features 1.3 Metre long fibreglass fox sculptures painted by local artists. My Fox, ‘The Fox in Socks’ celebrates Leicester’s diverse cultural mix, it’s hosiery heritage and beautiful rural setting.
Bespoke Home Portraits:
With a love of architecture, I also paint fun, colourful 3D home portraits with a passion. These portraits are full of detail, they are quirky and as individual as you and your home. Painstakingly hand crafted over several days. Unique and highly personal portraits for the home lover. Simple, friendly collaborative process. If you love your home or love some one who loves theirs, why not call, text or e-mail for a chat?
If you want to have a look at one to see the 3D layered effect [when the vacine has done its thing] drop in to the Soar Bridge Inn at Barrow on Soar, the Manor House at Quorn, the Curzon Arms or the Pear Tree Inn at Woodhouse Eaves or Chapel Yard Stores in Staithes, North Yorkshire.
