I am so happy i set up my first MYSPACE pages and the joy that site brought me was inzane , i still have that site and while i dont even think and can remember the code these days !!!!! I will never delete it cause of the memories . Most of my friends from that site came along to facebook and wow how much fun is that site. I heart FACEBOOK. When u paint all day in your lonely world cyber world is a awesome as you have people to talk to . I can go for days with out real people contact . So i thank all my facebook , twitter and linked in contacts its been terribly inspiring ride .
Inspiring to say the least ..............My ALICE series is all about my technological journey via the classic fairy-tale into wonderland and beyond . In my lastest work i am showing alice in paris she taking an instagram photo of the effiel tower . This is however just the quick sketch from my visual diary . I guess its all about how i deal with the ever changing world with PAINT . x

http://www.goldenpaints.com/ . They are the number one acrylic paint company in the world and easy to find in small art shops globally . I love this paint and i find it useful to be able to switch to something very compatible when i run out on locations . Makes sense to know more then just a few brands if you travel so u never get stumped . Nothing worse then running out of white in the states , this has happened to me and i freaked out when i went into one of there mega art stores . Just so much choice it was overwhelming . Now that i use a few brands i am always confident that i will always know an equivalent varnish in time of crisis . Of course i do strongly believe in supporting aussie paint companies when you can !!!!!!!!!

I am a huge glam rock fan and just loved the 80's and have spend much time over the years in a very special place on this earth called HOLLYWOOD thats where the jani's of the world came from . In fact on a few of my trips i encountered him , i was completely speechless not by his appearance which had long since faded but to be in a room with a supreme talent such as him . !!!!!!!!!
When i was a teenager i danced around to his music in my bedroom and sketched his portrait as often as i could which was a lot you should have seen my school diaries .I thought school diaries were actually visual diaries ? While growing up it was his music that got me though some very tough times in my teens . However its was his lyrics that inspired many of my paintings years ago and even to this day . Music comes and goes but there was just something about the song and dance man that jani was that just inspires . Painting his portrait is childs play for me to interpret his lyrics into a massive abstract is something totally else . He truly was a modern day POET.
