"But I, being poor, have only my dreams;

I have spread my dreams under your feet

Tread softly because you tread on my dreams"

Today I stumbled across this old video of my uncle Sean being dandy as hell!

Apparently, Robert Wace (a.k.a the manager of The Kinks, whom I adore) originally sang vocals, but wanted to keep a low profile so instead enlisted a young art student for TV appearances… namely my own flesh and blood. So random, don’t know how I didn’t find this out before, but my uncle is a bit of a black sheep at the best of times. (:

He’s even on the damn album cover:

I’ve discovered lots of wonderful new artists since I’ve started working in Graphic Studio Gallery, including Irish artist Maev Lenaghan

Much of my work stems from the desire to weave together visual threads that can be pieced together in myriad ways. In this way my art works become fragments of stories, encouraging the onlooker to engage his own imagination. My paintings, drawings and etchings are a reminder of humankind’s exuberance in the face of an impassive and insensible wilderness.”
