I wanted to paint what was in front of me.” – Philip Pearlstein Last week my good friends Maria and Jina invited me to join them in London for a visit of the Saatchi Gallery.

Dear friends, I’ve been silent for a while, I know but that’s because I’ve been moving home. This would probably be the 6th or 7th time since I arrived in the UK 8 years ago (scary how quickly time flies).

Aren’t dreams supposed to be light, transparent, intangible? I have, even more in recent weeks, come to the realization that what actually dreams are made of is blood, sweat and tears. When a dream has a substance, when it wants to come to life it becomes heavy and hot like cast iron in your veins. It […]Read more "What Dreams are Made Of"
I met Neil Moore at my first ever art exhibit at the Town Hall in Leamington. When he handed me his business card I mistakenly thought the beautiful picture of a lady in a lake with lilies was was a photograph as it looked so stunningly real that I was shocked by the realisation it […]Read more "The Art of Neil Moore"
