My Bio

I realised the Bio is mainly about my father..so this is about me..I have always painted,taken photos ..and I have done fractals since before I joined DA.

There used to be little newsgroups on the Internet and I belonged to them.

In between I spent years doing Tarot card counselling and was on the radio up to three times a week for over five years..doing live readings,I think the first person to do that.

The Radio actually forbids what they call "Divination" so it has to be made light hearted.

I gave someone the winning Lottery numbers and it meant I went on TV etc.

newspapers..

I returned to Art as it was something I have always loved.

My father made the first Peace/C.N.D. badges , I was with him helping him chose which design to use.. as a child prodigy I started painting when I was very young, but have never really been commercial.. but now I want the world to see my art..Someone asked me if I had ever put the CND sign in one of my designs//I have once,,

but I have a very different attitude to it than I think a lot of peope would expect,

My father was a real Purist,,

he loved simplicity, and black and white,

,. when the whole Peace movement developed,,

many years later, he absolutely winced at what was done to the sign

,, the embellishments of all kinds..

so I think I have copied him, we were extremely close,,

and I worshipped him..

he taught me to draw and paint ,, from when I was three,, and we used to sit together when he was making his pottery and talk about what he would do next.. and different designs etc. I have always felt the simplicity of the design is very beautiful,,, and enough in itself.. I'm glad the Peace movement have embraced the sign, and that people have made it their own.. the extraordinary popularity of the design is due to something I believe is quite sacred ...
