Taking Flight

The Bermuda Festival of the Performing Arts is drawing to a close. The last six weeks have been packed with amazing performances, all carefully chosen to celebrate the festival's 40th anniversary.
I have had the pleasure of attending many of the performances and have enjoyed them all immensely. 

It was an honour to create the artwork to commemorate this year's festival and to work with Alexandra Mosher. There are some of her beautiful, sterling silver butterflies left, but they will only be available until the end of March.

And I still have some canvas and metal prints available too. These are limited edition and made to order. I am working on a 36x36 canvas now - she looks absolutely amazing in this size. You can really see all the details. If you'd like a butterfly, pop into Alexandra's shop in the Washington Mall, or order online here.

And if you are interested in a matted print, canvas or metal piece in 16x16, 20x20 30x30 or 36x36, let me know, I'd love to make one for you!

The Promotion to Big Brother

"Booking the Belly Shoot with Amanda was such an exciting moment for me. I know some people wonder why; but with our first child, we never made it to the belly shoot because he was premature.  In fact, because he was premature and I was in complete shock to be in labor in the first place, we had nothing prepared.  I don’t even have a picture of the very first time I held him.  This time around, we thought we would be as prepared as we could.  I’m so happy that Amanda could capture this very special time in our lives, while at the same time capturing the immense love we already have for our son Isaiah.  Quinton and I are looking forward to the birth of our second son and we know Isaiah will be an awesome Big Brother!! Thanks Amanda for a  great shoot."
And thank you too. It was a pleasure to meet the three of you and to photograph your beautiful family. And Isaiah's shirt was adorable!

The Schubert Ensemble

I stopped by City Hall today to watch the Outreach Programme by The Schubert Ensemble. They played a few pieces from their repertoire and chatted to the students about the music and their careers. I have attended about thirty of these events over the last few years and I find it interesting that children always ask how old the artists were when they started playing, acting, singing or dancing. It is such a simple question, but when the answers are generally between seven to ten, the students can relate. That tends to be the age they are now, so the timing of these outreach programmes are perfect. They come at the very moment a child is ready to discover a talent and begin to want to nurture it.
The music was beautiful and as described by the quartet today, it is like a conversation between their instruments. And their movements show this too; they sway to and from each other moved by the sound and the emotion of the composition.
There are a few tickets left - I think it will be beautiful...
