and lecturers.

Add us to your list of freelance creative designers.  We accept briefs online or attend meetings when in UK.

We also provide a rare service for visiting authors who enjoy having the run of our studio and gardens where they can explore book image ideas and get help on their next cover design/s. This is by arrangement with your literary agent, publisher or directly with us.

Pop-up Museum of Shape & Form

“Vanishing points and delineation lines, like lake ripples from stone skippings, will be rendered unseen by nature’s overtaking green.”  (Grant)

The work of Grant grows within a seasonally changing landscape of trees, rivers and pathways.  As a designer, Grant shapes the new, which is subject to manufacturing requirements, materials, space, time, perception, costs,  future trends  and the art of balancing consumer demands with those of business growers. But as an artist, Grant creates works of infinite variation in purely pictorial space.

“To design is  to plan and to organize, to order, to relate and to control. In short it embraces all means opposing disorder and accident. Therefore it signifies a human need and qualifies man’s thinking and doing”  (Josef Albers)

Grant’s model of the Earth is layered chance. “Life tries to re-order slime”, he wrote in a school art essay.

It is interesting that whilst Grant enjoys working on projects that have clear structure and set frames of reference, he delights in shifting his eye to the open space between lines where so much more can be shared by teasing the eye and rippling the mind.

Green Belt Grey Belt

As industrial farming grows, the traditional countryside view of green fields, trees, crops and animals gives way to polytunnels, coated aluminium sheet roofing, concrete yards, greenhouses and floating sea cages.

As the population of the World grows, we demand more food from the earth and ocean than it can produce naturally.  In an attempt to communicate this to those who reproduce in their millions without slowing down, I have started to sketch a series of ideas for future paintings.

This is my first sketch:
