So it’s finally here…this week I’m on the telly box! My episode of BBC1 home is where the art is will be Thursday the 18th of April at 3.45 (repeated the next day on BBC 2 at 7.15am) am I scared? Yes…am I going to make a fool of myself in front of possibly 10s or 100s….definately! Haha

12/2018.

I filmed with the bbc for three days for an upcoming programme about my artwork (well it’s not all about me but come on it is!) Haha my lips are sealed for the details for now.

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!

*All my work can be framed for an additional cost, this price is different each time due to size and style choices

*Framing is subjective, each item has a “live edge” quality to it which some people prefer. There is no right or wrong, it is all a matter of taste.

*postage and packaging is Royal Mail and is different each time. I charge the actual cost.

*AS WITH ALL ARTWORK (BUT ESPECIALLY RESIN ART) ITS BEST KEPT OUT OF DIRECT PROLONGED SUNLIGHT

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.

IMG_20190519_125918

 

A recent order of a set of three hegagons, 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.

Had a go at some 100% resin, agate style coasters and platter set for a returning customer, 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.

IMG_20190216_093237_682

 

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. 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.

“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.
