Today I am delighted to have one of my paintings (Branches) featured at www.fromthewilde.com from which I now sell my paintings and cards. ‘From The Wilde’ is owned by Helen Wilde a lovely lady with a wealth of experience in art publishing. She has been working extremely hard to launch the gallery to make it look as wonderful as it does.
The gallery showcases the work of some really exciting comtemporary British artists, designer makers and illustrators. Each artist is in some way inspired by the sea or the countryside and the products are really wonderful. There is a great selection of Textiles & Homewares, Ceramics, Jewellery, Fashion, Paintings, Prints, Stationery and Greeting Cards.
If you aren’t too familiar with my work, you will discover that I also paint on a large scale. I love to paint seascapes and trees as you will see from the gallery. There is so much detail to be explored in nature and with my background in art and textile design I combine both painting and hand stitching to capture a scene. My work has been compared to Gustav Klimt which is a huge compliment as he has always been an influence in my work. I also have a penchant for Japanese prints and Emaki Scrolls which shows in my ink drawings.
With a wonderful array of products I am sure ‘From The Wilde’ will be a popular choice for many people sourcing beautiful, contemporary and one-off pieces.
My painting ‘Emaki’ is also featured at www.alwaysthinkin.co.uk in a great review of ‘From The Wilde’ and interview with Helen. Take a look here
