I read a powerful article in a magazine that really spoke to me. A few months later in a conversation I tried to pass off some of the thoughts from the article as my own observations. The person I was talking to had also read the article and picked me up on it (extremely humiliating).

That was many years ago. I can laugh about it now.

I am a Melbourne based artist.
I communicate through a mix of traditional and digital media.

    Your description alone is good enough and then you have to go and sum it up perfectly with beautiful type and fantastic poem. Simply brilliant.

    Kudos for having the guts to admit it too because I think we’re all guilty of that at some stage in our lives even if we may think we got away with it.

  • Great comment Spikerama. I love when my work makes a connection with others deeper than just an asethetic level.
