About me


My name is David and I own and run an Art Gallery in Jersey, Channel Islands called Studio 18.

The Gallery has been in existence for over 40 years and I have run it for the past 20 years.

The purpose of the blog is to discuss the visual Arts in all its forms and as my tag- line suggests to entertain, inform, inspire and teach.

We will discuss artists, movements, work that I show in the Gallery, news and yes, even the humorous things that happen in the art world.

They say that a picture can paint a thousand words and I believe this to be true.

Often a painting can convey much more clearly and precisely the written word.

Art has the ability to leave us in awe of its beauty and creator, it can also shock and highlight something about the world around us.  It has the ability to make us stop and think and reflect about issues that concern us.

It would be a sad place without ‘Art’ in all its forms.  I hope you will subscribe and stick around as we explore and discuss the world of Art together.
