    Latest Discovery – Draw with Jazza

    A few months back we finally moved from the used-to-be-massive-but-now-is-tiny-tube-tv era to smart-tv-oh-wow-you-can-do-that-internet-in-my-loungeroom era.

    My Creative Neighbourhood – Heart Art

    I have a new challenge in the works and in preparation for it, I chose the topic of ‘hearts’ for this week’s Creative Neighbourhood. It has certainly been and interesting way to discover new artists. I know I’ve certainly discovered some fantastic ones this time.
