Hey, I have too many pages on my website currently...so until I figure out how to condense the space, please leave your comments and testimonies concerning my work in your home...whether painting or photography! Thanks heaps!

Big doors swing on little hinges. You never know what a seemingly small encounter, conversation, email, etc. will impact your life on a scale larger than your imagination.
This week a postcard advertising company called Avant Card launched an image of mine called "Not Forgotten". I was selected as an emerging artist...so humbled and honoured...and thrilled to pieces. Roughly 35K of these postcards are currently being distributed to 400 venues throughout Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. I see them as 35K doors of opportunity, a chance to make someone smile, desire to paint, remind them that they are loved, and maybe even attract a few clients. Who knows? Anything can happen.

Just about everyone I meet either wants to be an artist, or has a creative soul so deeply buried they don't know where to start. So I just wanted to take a moment to say to anyone reading this...create something. Stop allowing blank paper or canvas to intimidate you...grab a pencil, a brush...heck, a stick on a dirt path. Take 5 minutes and analyze your artwork with as much precision as a 3 year old. Drink a glass of wine or blindfold yourself if that what it takes, but if you incorporate a few minutes of creative exploration into your life each day, I personally believe you will find it both enriching and invigorating. I'd keep rambling but the baby just woke up...LOL.
