I am a full time Fine Artist and Illustrator from Royal Leamington Spa, England, UK.
Originally from Birmingham, UK., I have always had a love for painting and drawing from my formative years.
I like to work in oils and I am inspired to paint what I consider to be beautiful.
For example it could be planet Earth, a view of the Cosmos, the natural world, a famous landmark, a steam locomotive, memories from a TV programme or a song sung by a Luminary who I have had admired.
As a Fine Artist I then express myself on the canvas through my visual experience (looking at the subject) or my audio experience (listening to sound). For example it could be nature or music.
I create a sketch to start with to include all the elements needed for the final composition, sometimes with a traditional approach, sometimes with a surreal approach through my mind’s eye. I use photographic material to help me create these compositions. In the case of a Luminary and his or her song, I listen carefully to the lyrics and the overall feel of the song and how it affects me emotionally. From this my visual thoughts emerge. Some of my images have led to commission work from art lovers who want a similar style in their chosen genre.
I paint from the heart and paint what I believe in.
My overall message is of Love, Peace and Harmony.
The Bigger Picture’
Here we have ‘ including a self portrait of the Artist looking at our beautiful Homeworld (planet Earth) and beyond.
Kevin Alun Parrish (Fine Artist and Illustrator) 2010
“Planet Earth, our Home world is a beautiful place. It is all that we have to stand on you and I. It is our life.
We follow the Sun giving us light, as we move through the Universe at 67000 miles per hour.
We all need each other to live on this planet, our Moon, giving us seasons and ocean tides, our trees, mountains, flowers, birds, insects, animals, humans.
We must change, as we seem to have forgotten the true natural thread that keeps everything in order and realise the best things in life are free and that love conquers all.
My hopes, wishes and dreams”
