Art is For Everyone
The Art of Gerard Fay is a Collection of Artwork Spanning over 30 years
After leaving Salford Art College back in the late Seventies, I worked as a freelance illustrator for many years. I loved it!
Back then, the market for editorial and advertising work for artists was huge. Signing with an artists’ agent was essential, so it was off to London for me, this was before I had graduated from college, and I signed with a flamboyant agent on Wardour Street, right in the middle of Soho.
I was seventeen and a working-class kid from Manchester, in the North of England, so I will just say these surroundings were a little different for me, but boy, what an eye-opener.
For more than 30 years, I have been painting, illustrating, and designing for magazine publishers and advertising agencies in the UK, Eire, and Scandinavia. I am still learning.
So, to cut a long story short, I have boxes, full of artworks that would probably, never again, see the light of day, but after discovering some online platforms, I plan to re-work my illustrations with design elements, and then, I can share these once again.
My two daughters, both love art, and they amaze me with their natural talent. Therefore, if I can find a little online success and learn from the online community, who knows, this may become a family shop.
Thank you to anyone who drops by and for taking the time to read this.
