I do enjoy doing commissioned bespoke paintings as I know that these are going to be residing in someone home and that the theme we decided upon together has personal meaning for them. I get a lot of added satisfaction when I see the client’s reaction on unveiling the finished artwork.
Most of my clients are currently within 60 miles of where I live but I do have some from elsewhere around the UK so would like to grow my client base. I created a 2020 Art calendar and for 2021 I have started designing a family planning art calendar so another way for people to enjoy my paintings and I have other ideas too.
Four of my portfolio paintings now reside abroad but my clients have taken them there themselves so I haven’t yet got involved in packing and exporting art abroad myself.
Given the number of paintings I create that go on to form part of my available portfolio I need to expand and raise my profile further to save my house becoming the subject of one of those hoarder next door programmes!
It’s always exciting, but sometimes a little daunting to put your paintings up for consideration by a panel of professional judges and then the wait for the phone call or email letting you know whether you’ve been selected. But it is rewarding to see them hanging in a gallery and these displays lead to enquiries
2017 / 2018 / 2019 Some of my artwork has been exhibited in various exhibitions including Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery: Wolfgang Webster Art Gallery. Plus local and regional exhibitions/venues around Cheshire. Derbyshire and Manchester.
Currently one of my paintings is on display in the 2020 Manchester Open Art Exhibition – 18 Jan 2020 to 29 Mar 2020 https://homemcr.org/exhibition/manchester-open/ and I will be at other exhibitions in our region over the coming year.
I’m delighted to be working with John-Paul and Sam in their new venture and look forward to meeting new and familiar clients and fellow producers in the Cheshire Quality gallery.
