This is probably NOT what you expect an artist to look like, but…..
I love motorbikes, karting and driving very fast cars and am very lucky that I can combine my passion for these pursuits with my passion for drawing and painting these types of machinery.
For me, being able to access (and drive) racing and rally, etc., cars has built up a real understanding of these machines, which I can bring to my paintings and illustration. It is true that I literally cut my teeth on cars and motorbikes thanks to my late father. This early experience actually furthered my interest in all things mechanical – making my life, to-day, a really interesting and exciting one.
Soon, I shall post up details of my forthcoming motoring artwork exhibition in Rennes.
I hope you enjoy my motoring artwork and welcome any enquiries. Thank you.
This (motoring) artwork has been requested by our local Sapeurs Pompiers – Fire Brigade to you and I. This engine had recently been delivered to the Fire Station at Ercé en Lamée (my home village) where is is based. The work itself is 70cm x 50cm in size.
The work has been painted in Artist’s Oils on primed, box canvas and satin glazed for protection.
This is not the usual sort of work that people ask of me, but, I didn’t hesitate to do it. Artists often are requested for work that is a little out of the ordinary, but if it fits in with the overall context of your work, why not?
If you have any queries about my motoring etc., artwork, commissions, Free, Open Days & Art Demonstrations etc., please contact me at:- E-MAIL:- firstname.lastname@example.org
A seriously pleasant motorbike, ideal for both touring and town use. The Honda Deauville 650cc gave its’ owners great enjoyment and was a very reliable form of motoring. This artwork is now in a Private Collection.
