Who would have thought that drawing my friends and people we met along the way whilst on holidays a few years back in Thailand, were in fact the beginnings of an incredible journey which along it's path, would lead me to this ...
During the course of the current Art Gallery of Western Australia's MoMA Series exhibition, Van Gogh, Dali and Beyond ... I am making a series of appearances as a CollaborART Partner, and drawing a collection of Lifelines Portraits of some of the individuals who cross my path in among these incredible Masterpieces.
Today I am making my third appearance .. but already the experience has been amazing having met and spent time with the first 12 characters whos portraits you can now see featured on the dedicated section on this website.
Be sure to also check out the dedicated blog where you will already find a couple of videos with some of the people I've met, their portraits as well as hear what they have to say about the experience.
There are no set times or dates for my appearances .. these like the Lifelines Portraits, will be spontaneous and serendipitous ... but I will be posting on Facebook and on Twitter on the days of my appearances so follow me if you'd like to stay in the loop ...
Hope you can join me some time over the coming months while I hang-out with Van Gogh, Dali and Beyond.

What a great night !
There's something about being surrounded by energetic passionate individuals who get together for a worthy cause.
Here's a short video I threw together of some of the results from the Lifelines I drew for the Organic Gallery on the night ... and a couple of the reactions of their reveals.
A HUGE THANK YOU to eveyone who sat for me ... and an EVEN BIGGER THANKS to Vilva and Nick who let me film them for this!
Congratulations to Roxy, Lexy and Laura on organising these fantastic Artillery events, as well as all the Artists that put their creative expressions together to support them.
Let me know what you think of the video - hopefully the first of many to come!
