About the Book
Features & Details
Creativity is in my blood! Whether it is experienced through photography, fashion or poster design, I love all aspects of the arts and crafts scene. Much of my flair I put down to inherited genes from my father, the artist B S Huntbach. Over the Covid lockdown I have spent many hours looking again at his bold, and often figurative, paintings, his fantasy-style drawings and sculptures. My father was born into an ordinary working-class family in 1935. They had no interest in the arts, but he developed a singular talent that deserves wider recognition. His work has been compared to that of Stanley Spencer, with elements of Dali and Aubrey Beardsley, but his style is uniquely his own. I have written The Sussex Surrealist as a first attempt on that journey to recognition. I have had two books published through The Guild of Master Craftsmen; Making Miniatures Projects for the 1:12 scale dolls' house, and Victorian Dolls' House Projects, a day in the life.
