Colin Veitch: life in Art- below my prints !

Wix.com provides this website but sadly their costs have risen and my income has fallen not only to Covid-19 ... web sites do not generate income, that is a myth.
It's been a real gas . . .
I had 'a day job', for 44 years that took me into four different careers;
· Scenic Artist Repertory Theatres
· Feature Films & Television Studios
· A Civil Servant with The British Council
· Events Organiser The John Lewis Partnership
Each one of the above career paths moulded me but sadly none of them actually gave me artistic recognition.
Success eventually came at the Royal Academy of Arts summer exhibitions throughout the 1990s, where my pictures were hung and sold.
Politics played a large part in my various career changes. Whichever Government was in power would either throw money at Art projects or make me redundant.
In retirement I am 'Living Art ' . . .
In August 2013, I discovered the fascinating world of printmaking thanks to the Curwen Print Study Centre at Chilford Hall near Linton Cambridgeshire.
In June 2014, I was awarded the accolade of Artist of the Month from the prestigious J gallery in Moulton, Northamptonshire.
2016 I was invited to the Three hares gallery, Onley in Buckinghamshire to stage a solo exhibition;which was a huge success.
Since then I have been pro-actively been promoting my exhibitions and shows around: Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Northamptonshire, Lancashire and in London.
