I had this idea for a series of paintings after a show I did in early March. It made me think that I could paint anything that I wanted to and so why not a beautiful @harleydavidson . It has taken 6 months to organise the shoot in order to get my reference photos for the new paintings and I owe so much to the people who have helped me realise my vision.
To the wonderful trusting owner of this £20,000 dream machine whom I have never even met- thank you for your generosity and your trust in me! @dennyakers75 thank you for all of your hard work getting this bike to the shoot for me.
To @scarletpage AKA @sureshotpictures thank you so much for the incredible shots you got for me under the most difficult of circumstances, quite a major one being the bike would not fit in the studio as we discovered on the day, computer malfunctions and endless numerous other hurdles not to mention having to work with a complete idiot like me, none of this phased you!
And @amelia.isobella a seriously beautiful woman inside and out who never once complained about jumping through all of my hoops on the hottest day of the year whilst wearing some seriously gorgeous @bowendryden creations!
Thank you all! I am so thankful to you all. … Oscar acceptance speech over!
Amelia Isobella my beautiful muse standing next to one of the paintings I made of her at affordableartfairuk. It caused quite a stir when she was next to the paintings and people could see how accurate my likeness is.
Visitors were asking to photograph us and the paintings together that was a very weird feeling for me at the time.
New work on show with @signetcontemporaryart.chelsea at the @olympiaartantiques Kensington
