Flemish/Renaissance/Medieval portrait obsessive and collector of skulls, junk, kooky toys, sleazy pulp novels and dolls from the 60's and 70's, living in Cardiff [UK] with my partner Paul and a tribe of cats, Lupa, Pogle and Tog. I mainly work in oils on wood and also do digital portraiture using a tablet.

Personal Quote: Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened


Just had another artist leave a message under one of my sketches to say he's coloured it in and what do I think and a link to 'his' work.

Just wondering what the etiquette is for that. I'm not totally comfortable with it in all honesty. Should he not have asked first? He has credited me, but it still feels odd. I don't want someone inadvertently getting credit for my work if they don't realise the sketch is by me.

He's only done a few and one artist has practically encouraged him. It's not happened to me before (that I know of), so I'm just wondering if I would be being mean in asking him to take it down.

Any advice on how to handle it?

Gary as a little boy

Portrait of my big brother Gary when he was just a little lad. He was so cute!

The apple is significant as I always remember him munching on them. Once my Grandma took one of the pips from his apple and planted it in a pot and left it on her kitchen window sill until it was big enough to plant in a border. We would often be photographed in front of the sapling as it grew. Not sure what happened to it in the end. It was probably removed after it grew too big for its spot once both my Grandma and Grandad had passed away.

I will be doing its sister companion (literally!) eventually.

Oil on wood panel.

I need to test it's all up an running ok so it would be great if you lovely people could pay it a visit and leave messages and let me know if anything seems off.

Thank you all :)
