I LOVE the Kills, so when they played onThursday 26th in Auckland at the TransmissionRoom and I had the opportunity of meeting them through a friend I had to show my appreciation. This portrait plate was on my Etsy shop but I knew it had to be with it's rightful owners. To my delight both Alison and Jamie loved it so much they planted kisses on both my cheeks and declared no-one had ever given them a gift as fab as that. Jamie also commented that I made his skin look great awww so sweet. They took the stage 15 min later and rocked us with their unique style of garage blues. The hits Black Balloon and The Last Day of Magic were the crowd pleasers but their encore version of I Put a Spell on You really gave me goosebumps. I wish I'd had my camera on the night but these shots will have to do until next time.....
I've always made stuff and wanted to be an artist from the age of 14.I made my way to Art School in the late 80s and graduated with a BFA, majoring in Sculpture. After a short exhibiting career,I quickly discovered being a full time artist doesn't pay the bills, so went the commercial route.
I've worked in graphic design, audio visual and freelance set design as well as garden design and maintenance.In the mid 90s
my boyfriend and I got married at City Hall in Manhattan New York. We eloped actually as no-one knew until we were back home.I have two children, a boy Jasper and a girl Madison,named after Madison Avenue.
