My I do not want to sell price £2,200.00

My Wild at Heart - Art 


The Bond of Love.

Relaxing with a friend

Please feel free to enquire into the selling price should the work still be available.

Original artwork depending on time and material usually starts at £200.00 and for a canvas print signed if you require full size start at £125.00 - smaller canvas prints varry in price.

I am not special in any way, my artwork is modest at best and thereapy for me during my

time of illness.

I have also been seeking to be of benefit to our community, and assist as I can, although considering my physical restrictions of

 mobility, it can limit me  in supporting and raising much needed funds for a variety of community projects by 

selling my

Artwork and greeting cards to raise these funds.


I am finding it difficult to access properties and gain a path to a front door

simply as my electric wheelchair cannot cope with steps,

in simple truth I have received no support or interest from the community

in aiming to raise One Thousand Pounds to hopefully have given to good community causes.

As such I have since withdrawn the offer and will support in private as I can.



My artwork will later be offered for sale with between 50% and possibly up to 100% of the profit being given directly to

a work of charity or within our local community. Possibly to support Wild Life or work on the church, or in the local community as the community leaders deam it required.


In the past, such causes as providing funding towards clean pumped drinking water for a village in Africa. 

Educational material for a school in India.

Helping a church in Glastonbury and another church in Martock in Somerset where they sought to serve the 

community, plus other good causes.

Friends Dog - Please excuse the reflection on the photo

I do hope and Pray you enjoy my work.

Play Time

Original Artwork donated to Royal British Legion to auction for their Poppy Appeal a few years back

A Mothers Love

I have been working on this one for a time and feel there is no more I can do to it

Inspired by a Photograph and adapted from Pinterest.

Protective Love

Spot the mistake - I was tired and forgot to define an ear from the body.

Innocent Fun.

Brotherly Love.

Did someone say Food.


The Hunt

I have tried to keep this artwork as near as possible to the original Photo by Harry Schindler from Pinterest.

Background merged Pastel softened and layered - Tiger Coloured Pencil.

My version 'Water Colour' of the famous 'Hand Cart Disaster Painting - True West Magzine. - Apolgy if I have violated a Copy Law - Although this is my version using water colour and artistic interpretation. 

Art is Therapy for me to help me overcome pain and other challenges in my life. 

My very humble attempt at painting the London Temple.



At Rest

LOVE - The Living Waters of Life



Tender Love

The Agony of Death.


Title : - Enraged


In Blue Peter Style

One I did earlier and offered my good friend and talented artist - Linda J Lewis Armstrong

Access to draw from my artwork - although to be honest

Linda's artwork is far above my skills.
