Recently I was introduced by its Patron Tracy Frost, to the relatively new website of "Art2Bank Limited". I was immediately impressed by the professional and comprehensive presentation of the site, which endeavours to give a summarisation on the global world of investment in art.
The site seems to have a specific focus on the world of corporate art and highlights the growing demand by corporate investors. There are also some extremely interesting links to some of the worlds most prominent corporate collections, together with sections on investment strategies and motivations, investment analysis and a variety of articles pertaining to art investment in general. The site features prominent emerging artists, together with search facilities associated to artprice.com. There is also a growing "Artist Gallery" section where you can present your art to the world.
In my opinion this is an excellent initiative and to be applauded. Art today is a business of immense scale, and I believe that sites such as Art2Bank serve as an excellent portal, serving both collectors and artists alike. I encourage you to pay them a visit.

Whilst I do very little commercial photography, I recently signed a contract with Met-Art, the world's foremost nude-art website. Met-Art are renowned for being extremely selective as to which photographers they associate with, so I am pleased at having entered into an agreement with them. Whilst my contributions will be limited, I will be making them on a regular basis.

Why I Paint|
Why do I paint? Why do you paint? I paint because I don't know how not to. I have a compulsion to create images on whatever will hold them...paper, canvas, wood, ceramics, etc. I usually compose my work in bed. At some point it goes on some surface. I seem to have a camera in my head. I see things as I drive past and I remember what I see and at some point I put it down. Who shares my experience?
