A commision by local author, Lindsay Ross, for his first novel, Perfect Roger. Available from Amazon.co.uk
Lindsay met me at one of my Marlborough Craft Fairs in 2016. He had a very clear vision of the elements, layout and colours he wanted for the cover of his book, whose working title was much longer than the final "Perfect Roger: Worlds apart, destinies unknown". It tells the story of two boys very different lives, one in Cambodia (top half of the piece) and one in the UK (London Skyline and Rolls Royce featuring in the lower half of the piece).
A nice in-depth piece in the Adver as they promote the artists taking part in this year's Swindon Open Studios over the first two weekends of September.
NATHAN Pegler, 43, became a professional artist in 2014 after 20 years working for Honda. He opens the first exhibition of his work next week and will also be part of Swindon Open Studios next month. Nathan lives on the outskirts of Royal Wootton Bassett with his partner, Samantha Williams, and has a daughter, Lauren.
NATHAN Pegler has the contented manner of a person beginning to make a living from doing something they love and were meant to do.
He spends a few hours a week as a support worker, ensuring a steady income, but the rest of his time is devoted to art.
Another feature in the local paper marking the opening of my new studio at Ashdown Equestrian, Royal Wootton Bassett.
A FORMER Honda worker whose artistic flair was sapped by years on the production line has spoken of his delight at opening his own art studio in Royal Wootton Bassett.
I hope you are able to come along to see some of my art, learn a little about how NJP came about and some of the things I've learnt along the way!
