‘ I recently returned from The Big Apple, having exhibited some of my work at Artexpo17. What an amazing experience to be part of the world’s biggest fine art fair. There was so much to see, so much amazing art, and so many great artists to connect with.
I was with Steidel Fine Art, based in Austin, US and London, UK. This gallery has taken me under their wing, and showed the work of about 10 artists in their booth, which was right by the VIP area of the venue, Pier 94. The opening night was busy busy busy with exhibitors, buyers, collectors, awards ceremony, drinks, canapes and DJ ! I had a huge amount of support with me on the night….my partner, Richard, my 3 kids Jack, Leo & Anna, my best friends Neville & Alison, my brother & girlfriend Michael & Anne, , and other family and friends, all so happy to be rooting for me!
Over the course of the 4 day event, I had lots of interest in my work, particularly from some property developers and interior designers. I’m hoping that this positive interest will turn into sales and commissions of my work in the medium to long term, fingers crossed!
Overall, it was fantastic to be part of this massive event, especially as I only started to take my hobby of abstract painting more seriously less than 3 years ago. To be amongst such artistic talent from all around the world was unbelievable.
A big thank you to everyone involved !
