Coffee Shops and Galleries, A Fresh Outlook to Art and Meeting People.

I love cappuccino coffee, and what better away to pass the time, than to popping into my local Coffee Park shop at Srinakarin. On Monday evenings its Au Bon Pain Rainbow Hill, Thong Lor , while I’m waiting for my hubby to finish his training. Then its off to a nice little Italian down for dinner.

What I love about going to the coffee shop besides coffee and drawing is meeting you guys and being in a relaxing environment, listening to the mellow music. I often find people come up to me for a chat and see what I am doing, and sometimes I meet locals who I have seen, but never really chatted to before. Its a really lovely environment and makes for interesting day, I never know who I’m going to meet so its kinda cool. As I work from home, popping into the local coffee shop gives the opportunity to meet you, being around you gives me the chance of being part of the bigger picture and experiencing life on another level. Normally the only real time we meet you is when I exhibit at shows and galleries. Because of my traveling life style I don’t get much chance to do either of these activities like I used too, so my little outings to the coffee shop is a great way to meet you.

My Mermaid and her Octopus is my first coffee shop sketches. I really enjoyed working on this little design, its quiet a complicated piece as her hair and her octopus are weaving in and out of each other. Like most of my artworks I have an idea of what I want to create eg: a mermaid with a octopus, but apart from that I just kinda let it happen.

After finishing this piece my husband and I took a trip to Manila in the Philippines for an week long break to meet up with friends. So more about Manila, Typhoons, friends eating out being stuck in a Hotel and more “Sketchbook Dairies”.

New Tattoo Website and New Home Bangkok

 

Its been 2 months since my last post, so much has happened since then…

Firstly, I’m now living in Bang Na Bangkok, and have been here for nearly two months. Its my first time in Thailand, and what a great place to visit! The people, and the culture here have been great. I have not done very much site seeing apart from going down the local for Jack Daniels and a dabbling of Karaoke.

I have been busy putting together my new tattoo website Lunarian Tattoos. The reason I’m doing this is I’ve been asked many times to design tattoos and I’m getting requests to designs tattoos or use my own designs for tattoos, so I decided to do something about it.

I’ve also been designing for Create My Tattoos, see my work at create my tattoo
