"Hi Ernie, I just wanted to let you know how very happy I am with my 3 paintings
that I purchased yesterday. They all look fabulous, and each member of the
family has a different favourite!!!!
Let me know when you have some new (smaller) work in your collection.
Kind regards (and thanks) -- Genevieve M, Sydney
I'm delighted by your generosity – thank you so much – and stunned by the images
you also sent. I think I like “011 Since Time Began…” the best – but it's so
hard to choose! May we have a copy of it please?
I found your paintings by looking through contemporary Australian artists on the
web. I'm a kiwi so am unfamiliar with Australian art so I was trawling through
glorious website. I thought that your paintings showed a love of the land and I
find that I discover the Divine presence all around me particularly in the
places I live . I find that artists capture and evoke something of the richness
of land which instructs a foreigner like me living here to also contemplate the
reality and beauty in this Australian place. Your Australian land is different
from ours, and the way you portray it in your art is a revelation to me – which
I find nourishing. Personally I believe that I'm continuing to discover the
mystery of God in this place. I'm not sure if this makes sense to you but I'm
very grateful to you! The prayerbook we are preparing for our Sisters has
painting and photos in it along with prayers. The images encourage us to gaze
and contemplate and encounter.
I can't wait to hear what the Sisters have to say when they see your work in the
book! Thanks for your part in helping us continue Mary's legacy!
We will certainly acknowledge you as the artist in the book. Please let me know
if you'd like a website or other info included in the credits. - A. Sydney
My name is Isabell M. and I am a GCSE art student in Greenhill School, Tenby
(WALES). For my art examinations in June I have to work in the style of my
favourite artist and I have chosen you, I hope that is okay. I really admire
your work in particular 'Beach Essentials' as I love the way that your paintings
are minimalist and also the way that you apply fantasy to this piece of art
work. I was wondering if you could give me any tip's or suggestions that may be
of any use, along the way to try and create wonderful paintings as you do.
Thank you for your time, Isabell Great Britain (Wales).
"TNT delivered the painting today - and I
LOVE it! Thank you again for darkening the green, it looks fantastic - I'm
really thrilled with the finished product!?" -- S., Queensland
I have been trying to look for more information on this specific
painting and what it symbolizes, I even went to your own website, but I haven't
found enough information in order to use it as part of my research paper. I know
you are probably very busy, but I would love to incorporate your piece into my
paper. Otherwise I may just have to use Picasso's "Guernica" instead, I
love Picasso, but he is a bit over-used and I very much like your paintings.
I am a fan of your artwork - I already have 2 paintings and my mother has over
10 in her collection. I am looking to add another to my own collection, and was
wondering if you have any large paintings that have a lot of lime green in
them?The paintings I have at the moment are lime green/yellow/orange in colour,
and the other is blue/lime green in colour. I am wanting to add another near our
dining table that has some lime green accents in it (with blue and/or yellow in
it too - I don't really want to add another colours to the scheme). So anything
that has colours ranging from yellow to orange to lime green to blue would be
fantastic.My mother bought one similar to the one in your sold page entitled
'Spring fever' for her house. I am also a fan of another sold painting '080
Green Electra.' These 2 paintings are roughly what I'm looking for - do you have
anything like this available?" -- S., Queensland
Thank you for your time. -- Chelsea, Canada
This is the reply I sent Chelsea:
thank you for your inquiry and having chosen my painting for
your attention and possible inclusion in your paper.
You have already read my artist's statements on both webs you
mentioned, so this should be a good start for you. Any further explanation or
background stuff from me on this artwork would only increase the "passive" input
into your thinking half of your brain.
You would be better off exploring your "active" processes, ie
your own subjective intuitive reactions, your the particular feelings rising in
your being, if any. I believe all artistic creations should be approached by
simply as something you like or not like, just as you would react to a musical
piece. Do you enjoy it or not? Often too many words, even the artist's own
"explanation" gets in the way of relating to the artwork on a personal level.
So it would be much better for you to look at your reaction to
the piece, ie is it evocative of something, does it raise your spirit, does it
convey any sort of feeling and such like.
Words usually get in the way when you are assessing an artistic
creation (either visual or musical) which has been created exactly because the
artist wanted to express something which could not be expressed with words.
The most important question is: do you get enthralled by a
Mozart sonata or the words written about it, and do you get moved by Picasso's
Guernica or the piles of books written about it?
In my humble opinion, you should look at all artworks "close and
personal", accept your gut reaction and do not worry about other people's
opinions and judgements but only your own.
I hope my reply helps you to progress your paper. Also I would
like to know a bit more about you and would really appreciate if you sent me a
copy of your finished paper.
All the best, -- Ernie Gerzabek
"Thanks, Ernie, for your kind words on my blog. I was stunned by your
mandalas - quite a new direction! I particularly like no 732. They
have a fresh new look, not derivative at all, which is no small achievement.
Keep up the good work. -- Astrid Fitzgerald, New York
"Ernie, your mandala paintings are absolutely fabulous. And it
seems you've discovered a new way of expressing yourself, that fits your
character. At first sight, they mainly impressed me with their incredible
complexity and their artisan perfection. How in the world can you possibly
design these complex patterns and how can you execute them so neatly.
I can follow your thoughts about a work of art having duality,
as you say, "they are simple yet complex, universal yet specific, man-made
geometric, yet organic, self-contained yet reaching out, traditional yet
contemporary, kind of ying and yang." Congratulations, Ernie, I love this
work, and I hope people will be able to take the time to internalize these
images, wonderful. -- Karl Maenz, Geneva, Switzerland
"Dear Ernie Gerzabek, My name is Camilla Warburton and i
am a student from England, my current art project is on the title "landscapes"
and i have been looking at your work. Two of my favourite pieces of your work
include "724 My desert garden" and "616 Scorched (Red Desert)". Although
they are not a perfect representation of a desert, you clearly manage to create
the landscape though the use of colours and shapes. I would like to know, what
artists influenced you to produce these desert pieces? and when your creating a
work of art, do you consider the colours, shapes, surface and scale before you
start to produce your art, or do you use what materials you feel appropriate at
that specific time? i look forward to your reply -- Camilla Warburton,
My reply is this:
Many of my desert paintings have been influenced by Australian
indigenous aboriginal artists. They manage to capture the essence of these
environments, using simple visual elements to make reference to not only what
can be seen there, but also the spirit of the local countryside.
I often have a similar approach when inspired by the landscape,
whether ocean, rainforest or the bush. Please refer to my many articles and
mini-essays on my web which give some insight to my art practice.
Pre-planning my paintings is minimal, usually it just flows from
some subconscious space, often just intuitively and 'uncensored' by my own
critical judgement, certainly during the creative flow. I may only pass
judgement at the end of the process and I either modify the result, or start
Anyhow, it was nice to receive your inquiry and thank you for
the compliments re my artworks. Ernie G
"I think of you often as we enjoy your paintings. They are
beautiful and we are so happy to have them. -- Tammara Holmes
"Hi Ernie, We just wanted to thank you for your hospitality when checking out
your artworks in your studio. Your advice in selecting paintings was most
educational and also extremely useful. As it turned out all of your three
large paintings transformed our living areas and the two smaller ones brightened
up the children's playroom. We already started to put aside money for our
next purchase from you, but we cannot rush these things just because we are
enthusiastic. Looking forward to visiting you again. -- Evelyn and Lachlan B.
"Your paintings arrived unmarked and it was a revelation how
much better they look 'in the flesh' as compared to the images on your website.
We are most happy with the 3 paintings we purchased, also would like to
compliment you on your professional approach and organising the speedy delivery.
Do not be surprised if we come back for more next year. Thanks for
everything. -- Brittney and Kevin Power, California
"Hi, How are you Ernie? I am a big
fan of your work, I think they are just magical. I love the colours, patterns,
and composition. I love it all! I was just wondering how come you
don't have dates for any of your images? Thanks for taking the time
to reply and i am looking forward to hearing your answer. -- Sara
My reply was: 'I do not date my
paintings, even though I sometimes wished I did. I probably do not want my
artwork to be pigeonholed into date boxes and be frozen in time. I am
hoping my creations are timeless. I just don't know how a date would make
a difference to the independent life of my artwork - other than aiding a
post-mortem exercise or helping historians in digging up a grave. My work
meant to be alive, not dead! Right?' -- EG
Távol a Hazától...
Lelkem vidám színekben tombol.
Magam előtt látom rétet s mezőt,
Magas hegyeket, a dúsan zöldellő erdőt
Gyermekkorom kedvenc játékát
A gyermekláncfű szerteszálló magvát.
Még érzem a Tisza oly fönséges illatát
A Duna lágy simogatását.
Távolban látom a Puszta hogyan párolog
Az oly sokat emlegetett Délibábot.
...s mert el kellett hagyjam Hazámat
Nem feledem Magyarságomat!
Eme színekben fejezem ki hovatartozásomat!
( a poem in Hungarian) -- Johannes, Hungarian poet of distinction
"Hi, I am a 40 yrs old emerging artist from India. I came across your site
while searching for 'painting ideas' at Google Image search. Wow! what an
experienced painter you are. I love the bright colours in your paintings.
They give life to life. I also read your tips for emerging painters.
They are very useful to me. Thanks. -- Kamal Bhandari, India
"I have just browsed through your gallery
website www.ernie-gerzabek.com. It is wonderful to see one's passion for
life through art expression. I think we have very similar attitude and
philosophical view points.
"I have very little experience in painting and still trying out different styles
and media. It is more often a child's play than anything serious. I
live in Sydney, Cremorne. I would like to do an art course or follow
a teacher. Do you have any good suggestions? I think I would like to
try "Abstract" style of expression just like the way you have done. Do you
take any student? Thanks. -- Emily F. Cremorne
"I am a year 12 student from Melbourne,
and I am currently doing studio arts and was researching artists when I came
across your work. I was instantly captivated by it and I am truly inspired by
it. I particularly love your use of colour and the way use can capture a
scene or a moment by simply combining certain colours.
I would greatly appreciate it if you would be able to answer a few questions
about yourself and your works so that I can better understand the process of
creating art. Firstly, what are some of the ideas and meanings expressed
in your artworks? What were some of the early influences in your life and
what were some of the later ones? And also, did you use technology at all
when creating your artworks? How would you describe the style of your artwork?
Lastly, what are some of the working methods or techniques which you use?
Thank you very much for your time and I look forwards to your response. --
Jacqui, Melbourne, Australia
"Hi Ernie - I found your site whilst
trawling the images search engine on Google for abstract acrylic art in
Australia - I just couldn't believe so many fabulous pieces all in one
place all by the one person. You give me great inspiration. I am
very new to painting - well I enjoyed it at school but life got in the way after
that. Now I've hit my 40s and suddenly this year I have become addicted -
have run out of room to put my paintings but I want to do larger and larger ones
- and I can't sell them as I am far too attached (not that anyone wants to buy
Since seeing your art - well it gave me heart that the kind of things I paint
are worthwhile and then I went to the local library and borrowed out books on
Kandinsky and Klee and felt even better, not that I paint anywhere anything like
I will spend some time tomorrow looking at your paintings again - I want to take
time to drink them all in they are so brilliant. The colours particularly
speak to me - I am a colours person - and I like your attitude and outlook on
life as expressed in your web site. --
"I find your work wonderful, your usage of
colours is very eye catching which I find I am very drawn too. Your web site is
also fantastic!" -- Christina Bleasdale, Sydney
" I am currently renovating a house in
Hong Kong. As the house will be white on white, I have been looking for an
artist who can bring life and colour into the house and I believe I have finally
found what I have been looking for, YOU. I am keen on the larger
paintings but am always open to suggestions. Many thanks and I look
forward to hearing from you." --
Merrian Howe Hong Kong
"You really do capture the Australian
landscape and I can see how the paintings must come completely to life (as the
colours seem to be so vibrant) when viewed 'up close and personal'. I love
the geometry in your works in Gallery 1. I presume it is influenced by
your architectural background. Looking forward to seeing more. -- Jenny
Steiner, Kew, Victoria
"I was just surfing the net for some inspiring art and I came
across your site, and I love your work. Its exactly what I was looking for.
I'm a 21 year old artist living on the central coast in NSW, I run my own
graphic design business, but I studied fine art drawing at uni. I was wondering
if it wasn’t to much trouble if you could spend a couple of minutes and give me
some advice on how to become a productive artist to the outside world with fine
art? What were the steps you took to get you where you are? Do you have any
advice for a young artist not quite sure how to create a public art life? --
"Ernie, your new work is beautiful." --- Bruce Langner, Sydney
"I found your
magnificent gift a creative inspiration. Art can be a mystical viewpoint that
enables us contact with the higher self. Your work has a beauty and mystery to
it that gives one spiritual comfort. Each piece breathes new life and pierces
You have a distinct flavour and a transformative message. Your self cultivation
in your paintings is a testament to your evolution of spirit. Your creative
vision is a healing song and all are blessed who share in it. Bravo my
friend. Bravo! -- Michael Teal, artist, USA
"Your name and website were passed along
to me by a friend and client of mine. They thought I would be
interested in looking at your art. Well, I am very happy to see it.
I will have to ask my friends how they stumbled upon you. I love your
colour and rhythm in your art. Very appealing. Your titles are
fun. No wonder my friends wanted me to see your art as there seem to be some
similarities between our art. For me, it is sort of like finding an
in-sync art-pal. What a treat.
I mostly feel quite alone, but totally in the right place doing my art...which I
have only really been creating for two years. New things come out each
time I wield a paint brush or fling paint (much to my husband's chagrin), lots
and lots more to discover. So glad I finally started. Best
Cindy Frostad, Vancouver
"All I can say is these paintings for
Jeans for Genes are BRILLIANT! You've done it again ..... hope they raise
thousands of dollars ...... -- Erika Bockos, Sydney, Australia
"Dear Ernie, I like your latest paintings
which are again full of color and positive vibes, and thanks for your caring way
by contributing in the Jeans for Genes fundraising auction. It's good to
see a wonderful artist who also cares for others. Your friend, Karl,
"The paintings we bought look wonderful
and they bring me so much joy!!! -- Jeannie, Sydney
"I recently received Artists Palette No.29 and was
so taken with the photos of your paintings that I visited your website. Thank
you for sharing your art with us, I have enjoyed your site so very much, I love
your use of colour, you have inspired me to keep on trying. Ernie, I found your
work to be most original. -- Isabel, Melbourne, Australia
"Ernie, your beautiful work gives us
tranquillity and peace and also captures a vibrancy that is so in tune with
nature and her ever-changing moods. You are capable of lifting a person's
spirit and making one realise what a beautiful place we all share. --
Lesley Byrne, Dublin, Ireland
I have visited your website, and was so
interested to see your work - the colours and vibrancy of the paintings are just
gorgeous, even though I don't think digital images can really do them justice.
-- Sarah Cranshaw, Sydney
"Congratulations Ernie - you have the most beautiful art
site I have seen. I have spent hours looking and will probably continue to
do so. Your sense of colour and rhythm is simply beautiful, and your texts
are appropriate. And my wife and I love what appears to be your
philosophy, positive and inspiring.
I paint from time to time as a hobby, especially since I retired and have more
time (see my site), and I just joined Abstract Painting WebRing and Art web
community. Our thoughts about life and what we paint are probably similar,
but man you've got the talent and the experience and have made it work
successfully, and you seem to have fun doing it. Well, you've just
inspired me, good-bye, need to paint... --- Karl Maenz, Switzerland
"I just received your remarkable painting. You were
right. The web site does not do justice to your work. I cannot stop staring at
it and remembering a few places I have visited in Canada, Austria, Germany and
Northern Italy during the last 15 years. I am very pleased with the latest
addition to my collection. I hope you are inspired and motivated to continue
your efforts. --- Charles Sterbach, Arizona
"Viewed your work online - just wanted to compliment you,
both conceptually and in execution you have an enviable talent, these are
magnificent works. Your whimsical blending of abstractions and nature, I
found particularly inventive and refreshing - re: Water, abstract paintings.
Also liked those poetic descriptions. --- KC Wilder, San Francisco
"We are enjoying your painting very much.
We were very pleased to meet you and wish you well with your work. I'm
sure we will meet up again soon.
Regards, John and Rhonnie White, Sydney
" I wanted to let you know that the
paintings were delivered last week on Thursday. Much quicker delivery than
I expected, and what a great job of packing them!! They're simply
wonderful. Even better than they look in the pictures. Purple
Afternoon 2 looks great in my living room, and the others will look great in
various other rooms.
I want to thank you for the CD too. You've got tons of great
stuff. Considering how pleased I am with the selections I've already received,
I will definitely be ordering again soon. Thanks so much!! --- Helen
"Dear Ernie, it was wonderful to see your
web page and the variety of your work. I look forward to seeing more soon. The
colours of your paintings inspire me !" --- Tracey Allen, Photographer
and Artist, Sydney
"When I was 4 years old, I spent 3 days a
week at pre-school finger painting. Not by my own choice, but because a tough
little girl called Greta kicked me out of the doll's corner. Since
then, I have tried and tried on and off all my life to paint convinced I could
do it. Alas, to no avail.
Last month, I picked up an art magazine in a shop and there it was! The
inspiration I've been waiting 33 years for. Ernie Gerzabek. Seeing the
small sample of your artistic talent, feeling the communicative expressions your
painting speak, I got connected instantly. Your work threw a switch
in me I can't explain.
Ernie, wherever my painting takes me - from here onward - you'll be there with
me. Thank you Greta ... but most of all .. thank you Ernie. I can
only hope I will make you proud of your accidental creation. Me!
Warmest regards, --- Linda Duggan, Sydney
"Your work is beautiful and imaginative. I did not realize I was smiling
as I went through your paintings." --- Nita Taefi, North Carolina
"We received your painting Snake Road last week and we have been soaking up its
warmth here in our beginnings of winter. It's interesting how this low-key
painting can pull you strongly into its rhythms and make you feel you're
standing in the desert landscape.
It reminds me of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico which are such spiritual places
where I feel the pull of the earth and rocks. I wish I had thought of
showing you our photos of these areas while you were here. Especially the
Native American pueblos and ruins and some of the parks where the rock
formations are so elemental and moving. It's a place full of spiritual
energy that we love and benefit from even when no longer there. Your
paintings express this energy without actually showing the desert scenes.
To me this is the purpose of abstraction - capturing the spiritual energy
directly and therefore more clearly and strongly than realism can." ---
Ted Knerr, New York
"You definitely have a good sense of
colour and composition. Your SHIFTS are very Mark Rothko -- only less
gritty, and that's a nice quality. They seem almost like digital images.
I think I'd like to see detail-shots of Opalesque and Written in the Leaves.
They look really good but I wish the images were bigger so I could really drink
in the detail. Its not too common to find real talent on the net.
Keep up the good work." --- Sean Ibanez, San Antonio, Texas USA
"I visited your site- beautiful work!! I
really enjoyed the article about you - joyous was indeed the feeling your
paintings brought to mind when I saw them. It's great to see artwork that is
HAPPY! I think you are absolutely right about kid's art- I love to see what
children do- it's almost always beautiful!!
Keep painting like this- the world needs more artists who love art - there
are already plenty who suffer for it!!! :)" --- Jeannie Pellerin
"I Saw your paintings in Artist's Palette
# 16 and was really astounded by your unique and beautiful work. Also the
text was wonderful and refreshing to read, you make me want to try new things
with paint. Inspiring!" --- Tom Short Inuvik NWT Canada
"On a cold and dreary winter morning
here, it was an absolute delight to drink in these vibrant images. What a
feast! I am getting the most impressive sense of Australia recently
through the eloquence of its artists, and I am in love! I'll be returning
to this site frequently when the spirit and soul are in need of an uplift.
As an artist attempting to move from representational work into the realm of
abstraction, it will represent a level of excellence to be sought, and an
encouragement to always search for the clarity of an inner voice. Thank you!"
--- Karen McConnell, Windsor, Ontario, Canada
"Your work is really impressive Ernie,
very serene and uplifting. There is a spirituality to it that I find quite
moving. It was also interesting to me to note the differences in our approaches
even though we are obviously inspired by the same landscape. Congratulations."
--- Jack Meredith Brooke, Artist
"I just wanted to drop a line to thank
you (and Mituri Sharma) for the terrific article and demonstration in the latest
edition of Artist's Palette.
Your work is thrilling and inspirational and has given me the impetus to keep
working and break down some of my narrow approaches to painting! And the
demonstration was a terrific blend of instruction and encouragement.
Please let me know if you have a printed catalogue of more of your work or
whether I can see more of it on the web. Thank you again for sharing your
remarkable talents with us all." --- Jane Hawkes, Toronto
"Very nice site and great pictures. We
come back later. Best greetings and good luck from Germany" --- James und
"I have received the paintings and I
absolutely adore them. They look even more amazing than the images on the
website. I have taken them to get framed, and expect to have them hanging
on my wall at home by this Friday. Thank you again for your wonderful
paintings. I just can't wait to get them
back from the framer so I can sit back and enjoy them as they hang in my living
room!" --- Tracey McCulloch, London
"I took a brief look at your work and
like in particular your "Homage to Australian indigenous artistry" and no. 114
Improvised Jazz. What strikes me most is the lightness, playfulness...yes, your
works make me feel happy...the way Klee's works make me happy. I've seen a few
shows of Aboriginal art in N.Y. City and have enjoyed the spontaneity, freshness
and deep reverence for life and nature. I see that in your work also." ---
Astrid Fitzgerald Artist, New York
"I received the painting today, and it is
already hanging in my office to rave reviews from everyone. I am circulating
your card and website address to all who inquire. Needless to say, I am
thrilled. 'Solitude Bay' looks better 'in person' than on the website. Thank you
again." --- Charles Sterbach, Arizona
"I thank you for getting me on to this
site. I have used quite a few of your paintings for sending cards, because I
find them representative of Australia with a very personal view, a very
subjective view that I seem to identify with to a certain extent. The titles are
thought provoking and evocative and very subjective. The painting I have
selected recently has an evocative title for me, very subjective... 'Lake
Adorned', the lake for me being, Lake Balaton in Hungary, my birth place." ---
Eva Kadar, Sydney
"Boy, your stuff really jumps out and grabs you with its potent colours. Nice
Indigenous influence and clearly a deep connection with the Australian landscape
plus an overriding strong compositional vitality. I'm impressed.
"I am no deep expert on visual art though, so there is no real symmetry with
your obvious keen and informed connection with music. But my wife Jewel is an
artist and did many of my CD covers - she really liked your work." --- Mark
Isaacs, Classical and Jazz Composer and Pianist, Sydney
"Ernest, I have seen your paintings on your new website
and admire your growth in versatility. As I mentioned earlier, you have that
gift of bringing out substantial solid material one can get one's teeth into,
but in your recent paintings I have also noticed your capacity for soft and
sensitive tones and themes. Whatever style you use, you retain that remarkable
ability to inject living colour into your work. I continue to wish you well in
the expression of your gift. Shalom!" --- Rev Christopher N Ridings,
"I have found your web site in the links
of some gallery, in California, I believe. About your work, I like a lot. What I
find very interesting is the fact that you transform the natural images in
poetic abstract pictorial texts .. I feel in this process the European cultural
roots are working in your unconscious...Ciao" --- Attilio Taverna,
"I like your improved web pages, they
load much faster now. The guestbook is most interesting to read, amazing
responses from so many different people. The enlargements with the artist's
statement is quite an inspired idea! Well done Ernie." --- Steve,
"I am in awe of the constrained freedom
within your work. You make it look as though it is simple for you,
although I certainly suspect that is not the case (I actually hope it is!).
Absolutely beautiful work." ........ "I received the shipment you
sent me. I must tell you that I don't like the paintings --- I love them!
:- they are every bit as spectacular as they appeared on the website and
look wonderful on my walls. Improvised Jazz is in the entryway, and
Seemingly Random in the living room. I have received wonderful compliments
from the friends I have had over thus far, and I plan to do some holiday
entertaining, which will expose your work to more of my friends and
acquaintances. Again, thank you for sharing your talents with me and the other
inhabitants of this orb. --- Mark form Ohio, USA
"I visited your homepage and I am very
impressed by your paintings! It seems
to me that you really love nature. Having received Grasslands 3 we like
especially the colours and their great harmony. So it is a painting making one
peaceful and balanced. --- Martin Gerzabek
(no relation), Austria
"I looked up your website and the many paintings you have there
in electronic display. After seeing them I think I have a somewhat better
idea of where you are coming from with your work, something you explained a
little bit with regard to that one painting at the cafe. Rich in its
colours and varied in its form language, your painting seems to express
something which is at the same time both entirely yours and still something I
think many people can relate to; something quite universal.
"When you have your next exhibition, please send me an
invitation and I will join the scrum!" --- Kalevi, Sydney
colours are what draw my eyes to your fabulous work. I love the new
direction that you are heading in. Can't wait to catch up with you at your
next show. -- Eva Tillott, Sydney
"We are the proud owners of two of your
paintings and would purchase many more if we had the wall-space available!
Your artwork is now a part of our home and will give us great pleasure for many
years to come. Thank you. --- Nicola and Geoff C, Avalon
"I received your 3 paintings and
absolutely thrilled. Thank you, Thank you! Your talent will bring
joy into my life everyday for many years to come.
I'm so happy I found you on-line ... the internet is truly a wonderful thing :)
-- Christi G, Florida
"I really enjoyed talking with you the
other day, thank you for sharing your views on art and artmaking. As I'm
just 'starting out' its great to hear from artists who are more established (and
prolific!). It was also good in that it gave me a better understanding of
you and your work.
"I checked out your website - beautiful works. - and so many of them! Also
I printed out your 'advice to budding artists' which I'll delve into more deeply
as soon as possible.
"I love the way you present your works also (SO organised for an artist!).
I think its easy for an artist to think they are there to just create the art,
not realising that the works don't just sell themselves!" -- Vivianne,
