Welcome to my art page – these are one off pieces, all done on 240 gm white A4 card, and can be purchased when complete at a reasonable rate (price may vary due to time and materials on each piece) photos showing a picture card mount, this is not included.
Art has always been a hobby of mine, I am disabled and unable to work because of a spinal condition (sometimes I am in a wheelchair) so I do my art to allow me to be creative and I specialise in Black and white , to give me something to do on days that are less painful. I hope you enjoy my work.
Each piece is a one off and depending on the complexity and my health can take anything from 7 hours plus, some pieces have been known to take up to 7 days.
I only work on one piece at a time and when completed then I will move onto the next piece.
I am a disabled man whose conditions have led me to move into a bungalow. My conditions include Ankylosing Spondylitis of the spine and on very bad days I am wheelchair bound. When I am in less pain I love to do my art and find it is a way of expressing myself and a way to relieve the frustrations of my disabilities and the inability to work because of these conditions.
I have always loved art and been told to pursue this avenue.
Why I need the funds?
The bungalow I live in I have invested what money I have into trying to transform the garden but with the health issues I have I am not able to do work on it anymore and it is not wheelchair friendly and days I have trouble getting out there. I want to be able to have an art studio but the bungalow is small and I would need a decent enough outside space to able to do this. The money I am asking to be raised is for the garden to become wheelchair friendly and to get a waterproof electric built shed/outside building to do my art. (wheelchair friendly shed, adjustable art table as I am using a hospital bed table at the moment, fully waterproof and full electrics) Please see the photos of my garden below.
How this will help?
I am a proud man and find it difficult to be asking for help as my dignity can be compromised because of my health, but by getting this studio for me gives me the time, space and pride in my work and maybe if I am good enough an outlet for me in the future to get back into paid employment.
I know that what I am trying to raise is a lot of money. However, I am trying to sell some of my drawings to raise this money, but to due health conditions and space this is a slow process.
People like to see if these causes are genuine please see my GoFundMe page to see what action I have taken so far, you can purchase my pictures here to help raise money towards my cause or donate here.
To purchase a shed/workshop that is disabled friendly, with full insulation, waterproof, lightning, electrics and heating. As the bungalow does not have the space to do my art in.
This is what all funds of sale of art is going to.
(This was the original state of the garden some work to remove the stones and membrane has been carried out by family and friends but they can only do so much, and unfortunately none of them work in the building or landscape gardening trade)
