Well, all our recent Neslons & Mandelas, which are being exhibited at the Cafe Jenze in Maastricht until the end of August;
Here are some photos of them.
(Sadly you cannot see the Neslons in the passe partout frames that we ordered for them, because the frames were of the wrong size. So we had to make do, and make what we could of unadorned Neslons. The Mandelas are properly framed, and look goooooooooooooood!)…Continue
all the people listed below who have sent me postcards in the last week or so.
On July 2nd I posted a 'Help!' message saying that I had 920 postcards and was desperate to get to 1000.
Your response has been magnificent -- 24 days later I now have 1089.
Which means that I've received 169 postcards in just 24 days.
I'm claiming this Exhibition to be one of the largest ever (please tell me if you know of one with more Mail Art), and it's all thanks to…Continue

A 'Sangoma' is a traditional healer in Southern Africa
This sculpture was made on Monday 22 July, 2013.
It started with a 17.5 kg (38 1/2 lbs) piece of Zimbabwean stone, and ended as a Sangoma.

Here are pictures of Zebb, the original piece of stone, and the finished Sangoma.…Continue

Disney Studios are considering making a new version of '101 Dalmations'. ("What's wrong with the old version?" asks Snooky).
They have approached ME because they have heard of my 1001+ Post Card Exhibition -- "L'Art de la Carte Postale/Post Card Art".
(And they saw the fantastic "Do Not Open!" video that Jinny Pearce made which I wrote. Hi, Jinny! You get a plug too)
I'm waiting for Walt and his friends to come back to me.

Here's Samantha, the Polaroids and some photos from the…Continue

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin.
In my penultimate year at Grammar (High) School, when I was 16, I took an optional (A level) course in Art.
There were 4 reasons why I did so:
