Bullfrog Art

About me: Doing A-levels, art was a break from other more academic subjects. Which I didn’t feel the need for somehow as life moved on.

But a decade on, as health problems became more severe it re-emerged. Initially, I was bed bound with little energy and no other means of self-expression but plenty of thinking time. So I started hoarding colourful envelopes & cutting out children’s snowflakes from them; at a rate of about one a day.

During the strict periods of inactivity I hatched a plan to bond fabric to paper then cut shapes from it; assembling them as greeting cards.

As my life moved beyond the boundaries of a single room. I explored fabric & sewing, and started doing courses; sewing & crafts initially, then making books, drawing basics, colour theory using acrylics and finally life drawing.  Now, I’m making intricate collages with a finger craft knife, adapted to suit frames found in charity shops.

My Journey : No Man’s Land

My artwork is mostly available for sale on ebay: The ebay link below takes you to my ebay shop, which is divided into categories to make finding things easier.

There is now a contemporary art gallery across the water in Gosport and I am an associate artist and regularly display there.
