Artist Biography:

I STARTED MT PAINTING AT 63 YEARS OLD
,AFTER COLLECTING NAIVE ART HERE IN CORNWALL FOR MANY YEARS
PARTICULARY FRED YATES AND JOAN GILLCREST
AMONG OTHERS
I DECIDED TO BE SELF TAUGHT
AS I THINK NAIVE ART IS FROM THE HEART LIKE ALFRED WALLIS IN ST IVES
SO I WENT TO BRITTANY IN FRANCE
PURCHASED AND RENOVATED AN OLD SMALL HOTEL

TURNING IT INTO MY OWN GALLERY AND STUDIO
CALLED THE GALERIE DE A CASCADE
WITH ONLY MY WORK
I DID THIS FOR 5 SUMMERS
THEN RETURNING TO PENZANCE IN THE WINTERS
, THIS GAVE ME TIME
TO FIND MY OWN STYLE OF NAIVE ART
THIS I THINK I HAVE ACHEIVED
AND HAPPY TO SAY I HAVE NOW SOLD APROX 8OO PAINTINGS AFTER SOME 17 YEARS AS AM NOW 80 YEARS OLD
I NOW ONLY SELL ON LINE
OR FROM MY OWN GARDEN GALLERY AT HOME
AS ALL THE SIX GALLERYS I DID SHOW IN
HAVE NOW CLOSED BECAUSE OF THE VIRASE
SO NOW I SELL
AT THE SAME PRICE I WAS RECIEVING FROM THE GALLERYS
THATS HALF THE GALLERY PRICES AS GALLERYS DID TAKE
50 TO 55% COMISSION SO NOW
I PASS THIS ON TO MY CUSTOMERS
AT THE LOWER PRICE
I HOPE THS HELPS
AND I CAN CONTINUE PAINTING FOR A FEW YEARS YET
I HAVE WORKED FOR MY SELF ALL MY LIFE FROM 23 YEARS OLD IN THE ANTIQUE TRADE AND RENOVATION TRADE
OR UP CYCLING AS ITS CALLED NOWDAYS
FINDING AND RENOVATING FURNITURE AND ANTIQUES
AND MAKEING FURNITURE FROM RECLAIMED TIMBERS

LETS HOPE 2021 IS A BETTER YEAR FOR EVERY ONE
