Wonderful Vietnam and Cambodia

I have just fulfilled one of my all time, ‘must do’, travel destinations, and it certainly didn’t disappoint.  I have spent the past 10 days in Vietnam and Cambodia.  Spending most of my time in Vietnam’s bustling Ho Chi Minh City and Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh.  What an adventure I had too. Ho chi Minh […]

Bangkok and all its shiny happy people

Gazing down at the park next to wear we live I spotted a typical sight in Miami: An all American girl dressed in tiny denim shorts, sporting big hair along with her fake boobs and tiny dog.  It made me reflect on people and culture and how different people are in image and character wherever […]

Tokyo

It’s very often the people you see or meet on your travels that stick in you mind more than the actual place or architectural buildings.  This is true of my visit to Tokyo.  Last month I spent the day doing a sightseeing city tour.  I viewed the usual touristy haunts, the Tokyo tower, Meiji Shrine, […]

10,000 Buddhas

I have just returned from such a fantastic little visual treat!  High above a hillside, in the new territories town of Sha Tin, is the Monastery of Ten Thousand Buddha’s.  The hundreds and hundreds of steps that you have to climb to get to the monastery is well worth it, as lining the steps on […]

I have firstly surrendered to the increasingly suffocating confines of my apartment, and sought refuge in the natural free spirited reaches of my balcony. I am secondly venturing for the first time into the challenging genre of […]

Californian Cowboy

My main painting this month comes from an experience I had on my most recent trip to California.  It took place on the fashionable Zuma beach in Malibu.   Traditionally a hang out for the high school brigade, a stretch of paradise where the rich offspring of movie stars and musicians while away their summer […]

The beautifully charming VW Beetle

After jumping ship during each of the first three months of the year, I didn’t want April to feel left out, so I decided to chase the summer around the globe and headed for South Africa to visit friends, in what transpired to be my most artistically stimulating trip of the year to date. From […]

Beth O

My creations this month owe their inspiration to what can only be described as a collection of truly awful photographs; a selection of under and over exposure and poor framing and focus.   The photos in question were taken while jostling for position in a crowd of sweaty and highly excitable music fans, at Beth […]

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, has been my refuge this month from a bleak, bleary-eyed Brussels in the grip of winter. A destination, which has to go down as one of the most colourful corners of the globe i have visited to date.  Home of the Pina Colada (and cheap cigars), this is an unbelievable island […]
