So, who is the artist and what's in this gallery?
..Well, some of my friends call me "fluffy" Neil, can't think why, and I am a visual artist and muralist from England. I picked up my love of painting while touring India as a young adult and I have spent 2 years in Asia altogether, it's a part of the world I find truly amazing, and my experiences there have influenced me strongly. While travelling the first time, I learnt to listen to my intuition, which urged me to develop my artistic skills and become a painter. I love gorgeous colours as you can probably tell, so I have been on a bit of a mission ever since, to help brighten up England's somewhat grey character, and make a few bob while I'm at it! My leaning has always been towards creative art, and I like to tinker with music too, though my skills with a paint brush are much better than with a guitar (but I'm not bad, and you can listen to one of my electronica tunes if you like by enabling the music near the top of this page:)
I studied at Chelsea School of Art, and later under the guidance of Omee, a wonderful Indian Painter, and have continued to learn and develop my skills ever since. The photo above, incidentally, is getting on a bit, I'm more middle aged now.
I can produce artwork in a wide range of sizes, from very small to very large, but it's in the world of mural painting that I think my work shines out, and these days you'll find me painting murals in people's homes and business premises most of the time, which is truly very rewarding work. And when I'm not away on a commission, I'm out in my studio shed, painting new designs for the printed wallpaper business I'm expanding into.
You might like to check out my Art Gallery if you haven't already... The gallery actually contains some of the older favourite images that I created many moons ago, and shows quite clearly how my style and skills have developed over time, as well as revealing many of my influences. Plus new pieces of artwork appear there from time to time.
I lived in Brighton for many years and now I am based in lovely Devon, in Ashburton, with my wife Liz and daughter Willow.
I can work practically anywhere in the country, and I offer discounts for local work, as I get to spend the evenings or weekends at home..
Thanks for visiting,
and for reading this far, (are you mad? ..look at the pictures, silly! :)
