A large commissioned piece approx 3ft x 2.5ft 100cm x 77cm. Acrylic on canvas. Iridescent blues for the tattoos shine differently depending upon where the light hits the picture. The request was for Chester, singing into a microphone, black and white but with his tattoos highlighted, and her favourite lyrics included in there.
A3 professionally printed on box canvas, hand embellished with iridescent blue paint on the tattoos and lettering – £100
A3 double mounted and framed – £75
A3 canvas roll (does not crease – perfect for posting) £50
(All prices plus post and packaging).
Also for sale directly from The Art Yard in Cradley Heath, West Midlands.
£10 from the sale of any of the above will go to mental health charities including MIND and The Samaritans.
Fire It Up! 100cm x 80cm x 2cm box canvas, mixed media. So large size!
This piece was painted to raise money for cancer research in honour of a friend who loved this song and Zakk Wylde. I last chatted with him last year, as he lost his mum around the same time I lost mine. I’ve painted this on one of mom’s blank canvases as I thought it was the right thing to do. Hence the huge size too! It raised £125. I am having limited edition canvas prints made, and I will donate from the sales towards a cancer charity. Details to follow.

Overall, exploring this site you will find details of a brand new children’s book, commission art and illustration, pieces for sale and fundraising work.
Please look at my pages to find details about commissioned illustration and art work. I aim to be – Affordable, Contemporary, Exciting…. Yes, I am ACE…!
Please look at the Princess Rottonbottom page, to find out how to buy this lovely story that was published last year. You can also find her on Facebook. Currently, I have nearly finished writing a brand new story that is aimed at older reluctant readers.
Had an awesome time at Hard Rock Hell in Pwllheli. Saw some great new bands, there is a wealth of talent out there! Met some great people and drank copious amounts of ale! Y&T and Airbourne and Reef were all brilliant.
Highlight for me was Dee Snider – totally awesome – he really knows how to put on a show. And since then, Reef (who I’d actually forgotten how good they were) are joining The Wildhearts and Terrorvision for The Britrock Must Be Destroyed Tour. Cannot wait for that.
I sold some Christmas cards thanks to Roy on the merch stall who was a great bloke.
The Primordial Big Bang at the Ogri clubhouse was a blast!!! Great meeting with the #prfam. Hopefully doing some work with Primordial next year.
My children’s book is coming along nicely and this time next year it will be published!
Here’s to 2018!!!
My aim is to be ACE!!
To provide Affordable Contemporary Exciting artwork to be enjoyed by people who share similar ideas as myself!
I can design and create customised cards, using fade resistant inks on bamboo paper, which means they are suitable for framing.
I can create your favourite pet/animal using a variety of mediums.
I can create your favourite rock personality using a variety of mediums.
Here’s the cool part! I can combine both of the above to make a truely unique piece of work to enhance your home.
Theres no end to ideas!
Looking forward to Download. Have all the camping gear and waterproofs ready! The list of bands I want to see is too long to type here. Also, Bloodstock in August looks pretty amazing too!
From July, I will have more time to work on commission pieces. I work in a range of styles and mediums. Just ask if you have anything in specific in mind and we can work together to create the artwork to suit you and your home!
Stay safe people.
I’m not the greatest at updating this site! However, I’m going to try and manage it more efficiently this year.
2016 – A rubbish year in many ways. It was a sad year knowing I’d never see Motorhead live again, and of course we lost lots of other great people.
Also, it saw the demise of Teamrock and Metal Hammer. I was gutted to lose a fantastic radio station with knowledgeable funny presenters into rock and metal.
However, I saw so many great bands last year – old ones and new. Look out for Hail Mary, Dallas Frasca, Ugly Kid Joe, Psychostick, Beartooth, Royal Republic, Juliette Lewis, Turbowolf (or was that previous year at Download?!)…. Lots of fantastic support bands…The list goes on.. So rock and metal is continuing and thriving. (Even if it was Sabbaths final gig last night!)
Exciting times ahead. Some of the presenters from Teamrock are developing a new radio station – http://www.primordialradio.com Check them out – at time of writing they’re still developing the business. Looking forward to seeing this grow.
I have been concentrating on finishing the children’s book I’m writing and working on new rock art. Rob Halford was the last star I created. I’m going to finish the Lemmy portrait I started 2 years ago and hopefully sell more work!
If you would like a price for a commission – please contact me for more details.
Here’s to this year!
I will be there!! So many great bands to see. Come and find me!
I now have limited time to create commissioned pieces, however, school holidays are approaching and I will be to work more, so message me for more information, prices etc.
… I have got four pieces in – Joel O’Keeffe (Airbourne) Till Lindemann (Rammstein) Beryl (inspired by Beryl Cook) Ugly Pug ( based on a dog from my local park)!
