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 81
AND STILL PAINTING
AND ENJOYING MY LIFE
=====================

I PARTICULARY LIKED
AND COLLECTED
PAINTINGS BY
FRED YATES
JOAN GILLCREST ALSO
STANLY SPENCER
BRITANS WAR ARTIST
ALSO DORA CARRINGTON
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
TO DO SOMETHING DIFFRENT
FER THE REST OF MY LIFE
SO I CHOSE PAINTING


================
SO I WENT TO BRITTANY IN FRANCE
PURCHASED A
DERELICT OLD HOTEL
------------------
IN A VILLAGE CALLED
WHEALGOAT IN THE
NATIONAL PARK AREA
OF BRITTANY FRANCE
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
ALSO WE TRY TO VISIT
OTHER PARTS BRITTANY
WE TRY TO REVISIT FRANCE
ON OCCASIONS AS OUR
ARTIST DAUGHTER LIVES
THERE NOW IN FRANCE
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
ALSO MY
SECRET GARDEN GALLERY
OPEN IF THE WEATHER
IS OK (SUNNY I HOPE)
AND HAPPY TO SAY
I HAVE NOW SOLD
APROX 8OO PAINTINGS
AFTER SOME 17 YEARS-
OF PAINTING-

=================
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 CORNWALL
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
AND I CAN CONTINUE
PAINTING FOR A
FEW YEARS YET
================
