11/11/2020  I apologise for the silence on this blog page.  Alot has happened since I last posted honestly! I mainly keep my Instagram and Facebook pages updated regularly if you want to see a reel of what I have been up to.

In short: “Home is where the art is” aired, did you see who won??? It was nominated for a Royal Television Society Award for Best daytime series.

My wife and I rented a stall at Wilmslow Artisan Worker Bee market for the day in November last year which was a first.  I was very proud to show my variations of artwork (and a few purchases were made!)16051030015901290375808576800238

Another Art Gallery in Knutsford called Vermilion is displaying a few pieces of my artwork since last February.  It is a fantastic gallery to visit if you are passing, very quirky and luxurious.

It’s been a bit of a whirlwind year up till now on the art front, last week Kate  Houghton the editor of Cheshire Life and Living Edge magazines came round to bmartstuff HQ to write a feature on my work!

Had a really nice morning talking all things art (and kids) the lovely photographer took lots of shots and we went for a coffee to get info for the article she is writing.  So look out for the next issue of Cheshire Life!

Sold to a customer who wanted it wall mounted for her holiday home. It has the best views in the world, the house is called whisper of the sea for obvious reasons! Take a peek at where it will be living!

Recent commissions, some beautiful colour choices:

My biggest and most ambitious piece to date! Made for a luxury interiors company, feel free to email me for details. See shop

IMG_20190519_125918

A recent order of a set of three hexagons, the customer wanted azure blue, sea blue, sea green, cobalt, teal, gold and pink! I normally try to stick to three colours but the client is mostly right and I love how these turned out.

This lovely client sent me a photo of a sunset (see pic) and wanted some similar colours to the clouds.  She loved the result so much that when it arrived and she opened it she immediately ordered two more to make it into a triptych!

A set of two in pink, light grey/silver and rose gold.

I had a go at some 100% resin, agate style coasters and platter set for a returning customer, I am very happy with how they turned out! Copper, pink and white.

Abstract monochrome and gold for a returning customer, made to match some side tables I made.

This customer wanted shades of teal and seascape colours, they live on the coast so I tried to have a wave effect whilst keeping it as a geode. The moodboard matched the finished product well.

This was for a customer who wanted a panel with gold, leading to rose gold and finally copper at the bottom. With charcoal and quartz. She was over the moon with it. It makes me happy to know she’s happy.

This diptych was completed based on (amongst other things) this mood board below.

After a consultation navy blues, silvers  greys and a dash of white were chosen.

The above was completed without fine line details as per the customers request and the sides were painted silver.  Each detail is controlled by the customer.

“Fools Gold” coffee table

The above started life as a boring table but a customer fell in love after I added the gold, marbled resin finish.  She  wanted it wall hung for a beautiful holiday home so I obliged.
