A Little About
The Art of Gerard Fay
A Collection of Artwork
Spanning over 40 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 40 years, I have been painting, illustrating, and designing for magazine publishers and advertising agencies in the UK, Ireland, 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 business.
Thank you to anyone who drops by and for taking the time to read this.
