About Grahame

Grahame calling to become a contemporary artist began in 2007, although his creativity and interest in art and music date back much further. He and his brothers were encouraged to draw on large sheets of lining paper by their Artistically talented Mother, as a way of keeping her Children occupied.

Grahame's initiation for creating contemporary art arose in later life, from having been introduced to the poetic form of Haiku during a spiritual – inner work retreat.

The insights from engaging in Haiku to explore dreams and his personal motivations, led him to invest in oils paints and palette knives.
Grahame is self-taught. Experimentation and playfulness are key motivators for Grahame's art. Discovering and mixing together a variety of mediums, like gel medium, pouring glaze, brass filings and brusho, has been instrumental in the mood and inventiveness of many of his paintings.

The Sculptures created in 2019 and 2020, are a development from Grahame’s exploration into three-dimensional wall paintings over the last few years. In these paintings, a significant feature, character or landscape has been constructed to extend out from the normal two dimensional canvas.

Grahame lives with his wife Rosemarie, and moved to Bishopswood, Walford, next to the River Wye in May 2021.

The ample studio space at Bishopswood, will be one of the many studios open for the FarOpen Art Trail during the first week of July, and has also the hArt, Herefordshire Art Trail to be held next September 2023.

We look forwards to welcoming you in 2023.
