Welcome BD-Art

Welcome to my homepage where I have tried to showcase a wide variety of my paintings and illustrations and also give you a bit of information about my background and interests.

I was born in the North East of England and I have been self employed since 1986 owning Art Cafes. I had always been interested in arts and had dabbled in art for many years and attended several art courses. After I retired from catering I had more time to pursue my interest in art and painting

I now concentrate on being an artist and I am mainly self taught. I have a enthusiasm to paint in layers to create texture and energy in a impressionistic and abstract, modern style.
I work in a wide range of subjects but mainly take my inspiration from landscapes and nature.

I believe that art has no limits and there are no mistakes only happy accidents along the way. Art is for all to do and enjoy its not only for the privileged and qualified I find art is a form of escapism from the dramas and stresses of life in many ways. From a pencil drawing to lashing on thick paints onto a canvas that gives you freedom to relax into a stress of fulfillment and enjoyment.

I have original artworks and textured prints of selected paintings for sale.If you would like further information or would like to purchase any work, please get in touch.

I am more than happy to do commissions if you would like an art work or painting done personally for you.

I hope you enjoy looking through the site and please feel free to contact me with any feedback or questions using the Contact.
