SO YOU WANT TO OWN AN ART GALLERY
An art gallery is serious business…isn’t it? Not when it involves manic artists and predatory female staff it isn’t.

WHERE’S YOUR ART GALLERY NOW?
‘A successful gallery runs on copious bottles of wine and colourfully intoxicated customers.’ Discuss!

NOW YOU’RE THE AETIST…DEAL WITH IT
Having sold his gallery, he can indulge his own creative urges. But art is never plain sailing…

Lee was the owner of a successful contemporary art gallery in  Birmingham art gallery called Number Nine. Since closing the doors of his gallery he has concentrated on using his creative capabilities. ‘Never too late’ is Lee’s battle cry and he’s exploiting all his talents as a painter in watercolours, as a photographer, as a musician and now as a poet. His first collections ‘Failing To Be Serious’ and ‘Meandering With Intent’ are already available as ‘Jottings and Scribbles’ a complete compilation of his published verse to date. . He is also the author of the Henry Egg books for children (see below) and he is currently working on a trilogy of books constituting a comedic fictionalisation of his career.
