Demonpedro ., Cadiz, Wakefield Member Since December 2010 Artist Statement Hi there ... Welcome! ... Make yourself comfortable, I'll put the kettle on.
I originate from a small mining village in West Yorkshire, in the North East of England. Sadly, no longer a mining village - a certain iron lady decided she didn't want it that way. Still a strong community, though (you can take the men out of the mines ... but you can't take the mines out of the men).
... And, it's my heritage.
"I was born in the shadow of the Pit-Head Gear ...
... To this day, I don't understand what my Mother
was doing down there, at that time of night!"
Art, Music, Literature, Humour and Cars are my passions,
though, ultimately, the only thing of true value to me, is my kith and kin and my integrity.
If my little scribblings please you enough to want to buy one of them, my Bank Manager will be pleased and relieved.
For my part, I'm just glad you took the time to call in to see them -
