Artist Biography:

I STARTED MY PAINTING
ON MY RETIREMENT FROM
MY FURNITURE
AND ANTIQUES SHOPS
BUSNESS
OF
40 YEARS--
HERE IN CORNWALL
SO DECIDED I NEEDED A
NEW CHALLNGE IN MY LAST
RETIREMENT YEARS
(MY WIFE THINKS I AM MAD)
SO AT 63 YEARS OLD

SO I DECIDED TO PAINT
SO I VISITED
BRITANY IN FRANCE
TO LOOK FOR SOMEWHERE
TO START PAINTING
AS A COMPLETE NOVICE
SO I VISITED BRITTANY
FOR A NEW ADVENTURE
FOR ME
AND I FOUND A COMPLEATLY
DERELICT SMALL HOTEL
IN A SMALL VILLAGE
AND NATIONAL PARK
DERELICT SMALL HOTEL
IN A SMALL VILLAGE
NOT FAR FROM MORLAIX
AND DECIDED TO BUY IT
---------------------

PURCHASED A TOTALY

DELAPADATED SHOP
(THE RECEPTION IN THE PAST)
AND 10 LIVEING ROOMS
ABOVE
----------------------






AND I DECIDED TO RENOVATE
OVER THREE SUMMERS
FOR ME AND MY WIFE
ALSO A STUDIO AND
A GALLERY FOR MY WORK

IT INTO AN ART STUDIO




AND ART GALLERY
WITH LIVEING ABOVE

AND TO START PAINTING
AND SPEND SUMMERS
IN FRANCE AND WINTERS
HERE IN CORNWALL
WITH MY WIFE OF 63
YEARS NOW
-----------------------------

AND TRY TO LEARN
SOME FRENCH
NOT EASY AT 64
BUT I GOT THROUGH
AS MOST FRENCH DO
SPEAK SOME ENGLISH
-------------------












SO IN BRITTANY VILLAGE
SO -AFTER 2 SUMMERS
WORK ON THE FLATS
I OPENED
MY GALLERY ==CALLED
GALLERY DE LA CASCADE
(AS WE WAS VERY NEAR THE LOCAL
FOREST WATERFALL)
---------------------




AND ON - MY RETIRMENT
FROM


------------------
,AFTER COLLECTING
NAIVE ART HERE
IN CORNWALL

FOR MANY YEARS
HERE IN CORNWALL
I DECIDED TO TRY
MY HAND AT NAIVE STYLE
ART- IN THICK OILS
AND SHOW THEM IN MY
OWN GALLERY IN THE
WITH MY OWN WORK
OPEN MY OWN GALLERY
IN FRANCE WITH MY WORK
ALL JUST GOOD FUN
AS NO OTHER GALLERY
WOULD WANT MY WORK I
THOUGHT -IT WAS FUN AND
BEER MONEY FOR ME--A
HOLIDAY PROJECT
=====================

=====================

I HAD ALWAYS LIKED AND
COLLECTED WORK
BY LOCAL CORNISH ARTISTS
FRED YATES
JOAN GILLCREST ALSO
NICOLE BEELING

NOEL BETOWSKI FROM
PENZANCE-ALSO
I LOVED THE WORK BY
STANLY SPENCER

ALSO DORA CARRINGTON
NICOLA BEALINGS
ALSO JOHN DYER
ALSO DAPHANE MC CLURE
AMONG MANY OTHER
CORNISH ARTIST
TWO MANY TO MENTION
JUST TO MANY
TO MENTION
----------------
SO I DECIDED TO BE
A SELF TAUGHT
NAIVE ARTIST AND
FIND MY OWN STYLE
FOR MY RETIREMENT YEARS
THIS I THINK
I HAVE ACHIVED
ITS A LITTLE BIT OF
ALL THE ARTISTS
I HAD COLLECTED
------------------
AS I THINK NAIVE ART
IS FROM THE HEART
NOT FROM
AN ART SCHOOL
SO AS I HAD BEEN
RENOVATING AND
RESTORING ANTIQUE

FURNITURE ALSO MAKING
RECLAIMED FURNITURE
FROM ANTIQUE RECLAMED WOOD
VERY SUCCESSFULLY
FOR THE LAST 40 YEARS
