Artist Biography:

I STARTED MY PAINTING AT 63 YEARS OLD
,AFTER COLLECTING NAIVE ART HERE IN CORNWALL
FOR MANY YEARS
I AM NOW 80 AND STILL PAINTING
AND ENJOYING MY LIFE
I PARTICULARY LIKE
FRED YATES PAINTINGS
AND JOAN GILLCREST
AND NICOLA BEALINGS
ALSO JOHN DYER
AMONG OTHER CORNISH ARTIST
JUSY TO MANY TO MENTION
AMONG OTHERS
SO I DECIDED TO BE A SELF TAUGHT
NAIVE ARTIST AND FIND MY OWN STYLE
THIS I THINK I HAVE ACHIVED
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
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 DERALICT 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 PAIT FULL TIME
SHOWING MY WORK IN MY OWN GALLERY
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 ENOUGH
TO PAY FOR MORE PAINT AND CANVASES
AND A FEW BOTTLES OF WINE
GREAT FUN
MY DAUGHTER NOW HASE THE PREMISES
AND WE TRY TO VISIT BRITTANY
ON OCCASIONS
BUT A LITTLE DIFFICULT WHEN MY OWN
GARDEN GALLERY HERE IN MITCHEL
IS OPEN FOR SUMMER VISITERS





TURNING IT INTO MY OWN GALLERY AND STUDIO
CALLED THE GALERIE DE A CASCADE
WITH ONLY MY WORK PLUS A FEW LOCAL ARTISTS
IN CLUDING MY DAUGHTERS WORK
MELANIE MC DONALD


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
BUT 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 SO NOW
I PASS THIS ON TO MY CUSTOMERS
AT THE LOWER PRICE
I HOPE THS HELPS EVERY ONE
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
SO MANY THANKS TO ALL MY THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE PURCHASED ONE OR MORE OF MY PAINTING IN THE PAST
