I was approached by a trend forecasting company in the U.K with a view to using one of my images ( Bravura..Lapis Lazuli, one of my oil paintings) as part of the colour trend forecasting…see above right..
When I queried it, I was told they considered me to be an innovator in art…needless to say I was thrilled…it meant that my work would be seen all over the world in every aspect of industry from a teacup to luxury cars and could influence the design and colours of everything in the world market….
