Lloyd‘s work is available to art collectors, galleries, interior designers, stagers, art publishers, and for corporate & hospitality needs.
“For me, art is all about telling stories, setting a mood, starting conversations. It’s like a window that opens onto my subconscious, where I collect the bits and pieces I find there and allow them to tell a tale.
My art creates a distinct atmosphere - of mystery, whimsy, organic movement or unnatural stillness. Certain pieces may be light-hearted, others unnerving. But, as long as my art engages the viewer in a satisfying dialogue, I consider it a success."
