My name is Frank D Crompton HZ. I started to paint when I was about 10 years old, went to Salford Art Collage when 11 years old but only for a few weeks, then painted on & off for the rest of my adult life.
I retired 20 years ago, then turned professional, now I paint every day, I have a very nice studio and live in a very old converted Corn Mill that is 515 years old, and only 40 yards from the sea it gives me beautiful light in my studio, I sell my work all over the world and I am known for my Penny People these are some of the characters that are in many of my paintings, Four of my Penny People paintings where chosen to be made into Billboard Posters then shown in the London Underground at Hyde Park Corner & others, seen by Millions, I am the only artist from the Isle of Man this has happened to. I have had many successful exhibitions over the years, my best last year I sold 54 paintings, I paint in many styles but many people say I paint like L S Lowry, I paint mostly ;in Gouache, but also water colour, Acrylic, Oil, Pen & wash. I also Paint my characters on a small piece of mount board on a wooden 5"easel and people collect them as they all have names, some have been made into mugs that are microwave and dishwasher safe so I believe my work will make you smile and be happy, so please enjoy like hundreds of others, good luck Frank.
