Artist Biography:

I STARTED MY PAINTING AT 63 YEARS OLD
IN A DELAPADATED SHOP IN BRITTANY FRANCE
THAT I HAD RENOVATED IN MY RETIRMENT FROM
MY FURNITURE BUSSNESS
,AFTER COLLECTING NAIVE ART HERE IN CORNWALL
FOR MANY YEARS
I AM NOW 80 AND STILL PAINTING
AND ENJOYING MY LIFE
=====================

I PARTICULARY LIKED AND COLLECTED
PAINTINGS BY
FRED YATES
JOAN GILLCREST ALSO

NICOLA BEALINGS
ALSO JOHN DYER
AMONG MANY OTHER
CORNISH ARTIST
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 ANTIQUE
FURNITURE ALSO MAKING RECLAIMED FURNITURE
FROM ANTIQUE RECLAMED WOOD
VERY SUCCESSFULLY
FOR THE LAST 40 YEARS I JUST SAW THIS AS A NEW
PROJECT FOR ME IN MY RETIREMENT AT 60
FROM FURNITURE MANUFACTURING
================================
SO I WENT TO BRITTANY IN FRANCE
PURCHASED A DERELICT OLD HOTEL
--------------------------------
IN A VILLAGE CALLED WHEALGOAT IN THE
NATIONAL PARK AREA OF BRITTANY
AND TOTALY RENOVATED IT OVER TWO SUMMERS
AND THEN STARTED TO PAINT FULL TIME
SHOWING ONLY MY WORK IN MY OWN GALLERY
ALL GOOD FUN
===================================
JUST TRYING TO FIND A STYLE OF MY OWN
THIS I CONTINUED TO DO FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS
WITH MY WIFE WE OPENED THE GALLERY 4 DAYS
A WEEK AND EXPLORED BRITTANY FOR 3 DAYS A WEEK
ALL GOOD FUN
AND I SOLD ONE OR TWO PAINTING A WEEK
IT PAID FOR THE WINE AND A SNACK
WE TRY TO VISIT BRITTANY
ON OCCASIONS AS MY DAUGHTER LIVES
THERE NOW
BUT ITS NOT POSSIBLE
FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS
DUE TO THIS VIRUS

=================================
ALL A LITTLE DIFFICULT WHEN MY OWN
GARDEN GALLERY HERE IN MITCHEL
IS OPEN FOR SUMMER VISITERS
NOW LARGER AND BETTER
AND HAPPY TO SAY I HAVE NOW SOLD
APROX 8OO PAINTINGS AFTER SOME 17 YEARS-
OF PAINTING-
AS AM NOW 80 YEARS OLD
=============================
NOW DUE TO THE VIRUS SITUATION
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 ON ANY SALES
=== SO NOW ===
I PASS THIS ON TO MY CUSTOMERS
HERE IN MITCHELL
AT THE LOWER PRICE
I HOPE THS HELPS EVERY ONE
AND I CAN CONTINUE PAINTING FOR A
FEW YEARS YET
================

LETS HOPE 2021 IS A BETTER YEAR FOR EVERY ONE
SO MANY THANKS TO ALL MY THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE PURCHASED ONE OR MORE OF MY PAINTING IN THE PAST
