My natural habitat is the floor with art
.
.
I burry myself in color everyday. The walls are covered with splashes of paint and my cloths are stained with color.
.
.
I create a little or I create a lot but I choose to create because it fills my soul with color.

I get so excited when the opportunity arises to paint big. It offers more space for the unexpected details that I love so much.❤️
.
My client and I decided on the palette together and she wanted it to feel light and airy.✨
.
My head is often in the clouds 😊so this was one that flowed through me almost effortlessly. (In contrast to the stack of canvases next to me😣)

fun fact ⚡️these roses, designed as a part of @ericson_rose’s brand elements, were based on a tattoo that she already had. Love when a brand can mean so much more 🌹

So my daughter ask me to help decorate her salon cart for school. So I’m like sure, what you had in mind...... “ something like Starry Nighty by Van Gogh”. Lmbo sure, that’s not a challenge!! But we found scrap pieces of vinyl, found some clip arts of swirls and a swirl style sun, cut and applied. Overall I think it came great. #starrynight #vinyl #saloncart #beautyschool #inspiredart #vangogh #usewhatyouhave #lastminuteproject #vinylcutter #artistsoninstagram

Going through the pictures of my artwork for my website. This painting is from a couple of years ago. Power - and colorful! 
Titel: ‘Unlabeled’ - cans have labels 31” x 39”
Don’t let anyone label you. Put the labels aside and be the colorful true you!

I gotta crazy-busy schedule ahead of me, tryin’ to make sure I have enough pieces (31 hopefully) for the #InkTaiber series in October, which means I’m up all night & awake before the sun rises....drawing...but I’m pretty certain it’s all gonna be worth it, cuz I have some concepts planned that I’m very excited about, including this one....

Another 😁🍂🍃🍁Silver Birch Fall Forest design on olive green bamboo tshirt.  I love autumn so much, it’s such a vibrant and fresh season.  The colours, and smells of change. The beauty of death and decay.  Here’s another design dedicated to nature, inspired by the first day of a great new season, and new stage of my life and career. *

Painting in St. Remy, France, 2013 
Nearly every year for over a decade a small group of us -artists all - have traveled to different locations to spend about 10 days painting and seeing the sights. On this trip we were 10 minutes from the asylum where Van Gogh spent a year after cutting off his ear while living with Gauguin in The Yellow House in Arles. While in the asylum he painted some of his most famous pieces, e.g., “Starry Night”. It was inspiring to walk where he walked and see exactly the places he painted some of his paintings. Many of the same buildings and trees still stand ... only one of his paintings remains in a museum in the south of France, as most of his paintings are in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. He sold one painting in his lifetime, and is now one of the most sought-after artists of the 21st century. 
Keep painting ... just keep painting ...

The Budapest bathhouses well and truly known but not exactly how the guide books tell it. This is an opportunity to sweat to the extreme, bathe with several hundred people you don't know, observe the pre-mating rituals of humankind and feel exposed to the stares of morbidly obese male Hungarians.

The time I met Jose, Paco and Wellington at the surperb Meson De Champiñon. This was by far the most positive dining and hospitality experience from my time in Madrid! This year they have been operating for 50 years, it's not hard to see why! The images on the bottom far left and right were taken back when they started in 1979 and 1981. With broken English and broken Spanish we talked about Madrid, lesser known Australian animals and most importantly the recipe for these devine mushrooms that I can't wait to cook when I return to Australian shores.

Ever had a Portuguese male wash your feet in the botanic gardens in Valencia, Spain? Having met the day before at La Tomatina, Ivo showed me through Valencia through a translated expedition with a walk of the Central Market, a shared tapas plate and vino, a lazy stroll through the Botanic Gardens and a history lesson at the Cathedral. Giving a speed course I was educated in Spanish pleasantries and can now ask the simplest of questions. Speaking fluently in five languages Ivo lives in Amsterdam with a role that gives the flexibility during the week to go to tomato throwing festivals and have time to wash the feet of Australian women with a smile. 
Lesson: Men like this do exist

These guys! Oh these guys. They are the prefect duo to dint the stereotypical ways of the French. Julien and Alexandre are traveling Croatia in true bromance style. Alex having spent a decent stint in Australia has managed to pick up an Aussie sense of humour delivered with a French accent. We went for a beverage the boys gave me a profanity education in French. There are not many hostel goers who can stur you after a 6am return from a pub crawl without the need to kill but these two with their "G'day mate" and "Hey Aussie" at the break of dawn did so with such humour they just got away with it. It would be a hoot to catch up with these two when  in France. Possibly still intoxicated but with a checkout time looming this photograph was taken. 
Lesson learned: Thankfully with stereotypes there are always the exceptions.

Frank I met on the deck of an overnight ferry from Piraeus to Crete just after boarding. He had just driving his motorbike from Germany to Greece, a journey he has completed on more than one occasion. Crete is just a layover on his way to Karpathos to meet his friend Spiros. Knowing his friend won't accept money or gifts in appreciation of his hospitality Frank completes his journey with 3kg of cat food for Spiro's three cats. He gave insight into the general unhappiness of the Athenians and explained the Greece financial crisis has hit Athens worse than other areas. Despite traveling around many roads in Greece he still avoids Athens and the tourist shambles of the Parthenon. Most likely Frank will make the same trip, but not along the same roads, from Germany to Greece next year. His parting words of advice were to make sure I didn't miss the sunrise. We didn't.

He gave insight into the general unhappiness of the Athenians and explained the Greece financial crisis has hit Athens worse than other areas. Despite traveling around many roads in Greece he still avoids Athens and the tourist shambles of the Parthenon. Most likely Frank will make the same trip, but not along the same roads, from Germany to Greece next year. His parting words of advice were to make sure I didn't miss the sunrise. We didn't.
On the Napoli shoreline I met Dominic and after a very broken Italiglish conversation I received my first proposal of marriage and request to move to Italy. However tempting the EU passport may be I politely declined. Dominic worked on the boats in what role we couldn't quite translate. I will not be bringing him back to Sydney.

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right ... Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." — Jose Harris

"You'll be on your way up!
You'll be seeing great sights!
You'll join the high fliers
who soar to high heights."

The time I met ... This woman! This person! This amazing human being! I had the absolute pleasure of meeting the wonderful @turiapitt just moments ago! This strong willed and determined woman shook my shaking hands and literally opened her arms to hug me today. I only hope some of her determination and pure goodness was transferred. If you ever need a volunteer or an employee it would be a pleasure! Thank you for being you!!
