A Bit of Education on Artist’s Copyrights!

A Bit of Education on Artist’s Copyrights!

If I need an image I go to Google Images, right click > Save as, we all do it!

What is not fine is when we copy images from the net and use them on...

About Gaia’s Workshops

About Gaia’s Workshops

  Art is one of the great ways to learn about oneself. In immersing ourselves in playing with colours, we reach places that are not easily found in our busy lives.

On the other hand art can also be a cathartic process when we feel...

Exhibiting in the US and Crossing the Border with your Art

Exhibiting in the US and Crossing the Border with your Art

I recently exhibited my art in the US for my first solo show in Boulder Colorado. While I’ve been on road trips in the US many times, this was a first crossing the border with artwork in my van. Needless to say, I was a bit nervous.  The advice I got from artist colleagues was to ‘just say that you are going to show your art at a non-profit art event with a big smile. For me there is no...

Integral City: Sponsor of my Solo Show in Boulder, Colorado

I am thrilled to have Integral City as a sponsor of this catalog. Our work is intimately connected: having graduated as an architect I’ve studied urban planning and have always naturally recognized when cities are well thought out, evidently affecting the quality of lives and communities positively.

Facebook is a great tool for artists – PART 2: Tips and tricks I have learned

When I started using facebook I quickly realized that my effort and time spent on facebook was not rewarding and effective. I paid a local marketing expert that specializes in social media to teach me individually about all the tricks of the trade (her name is Lynn Martin from Mark Us Marketing) . We ended up spending 5 hours together and she taught me how to bring my client database into...

Why I Turned Down A Louvre Exhibition

Why I Turned Down A Louvre Exhibition

She is a very talented artist that paints in the style of the old masters and I thought that her art was a great fit for the Louvre. I never thought for a second that my art could be considered for...
