Recent History (a.k.a. 21st Century)
March 2005. Well I have finally turned 21, I was the
last of all my friends. Nothing's changed though, but then it never
really does on a birthday like you think it might. Had a great birthday
and a great party thanks to all the people who turned up. (Yay I do
have friends, hehe).
August 2004. Wow,
it has been a while... I have just added a few more portraits I hadn't
had time to post, and there are a few more on the way. I also have
commission work lined up 'til the end of the year, so there should be
some more updates in 2004.
You know that feeling, that
horrible feeling when a program
you love is not going to be made anymore. They're just not going to
film another episode, and the fans are left to ponder what might have
happened. Then there's that other feeling where you know it's time for
the show to finish, because it would be even worse if the show started
to get crap, instead of finishing when it was still on a high note.
Because you see, Buffy is in it's final season, and it's the best show
on earth, and soon I'll never see a new episode of Buffy again. Despite
the fact that I'll be able to watch the seasons over and over after the
show's demise, the tingly feeling you get of not knowing how the
episode will end will be lost forever. So for all those who enjoyed
Buffy as much as I did, or any great show that was axed, I'd like to
take a moment's silence, and remember the great moment's in the place
we know as the buffy-verse.
I was born in suburban Victoria (that's in the great land of Oz a.k.a Australia,) I have lived in the one beautiful house all my life. I have grown up with my older brother, 24, and my younger sister, recently 18. The youngest in the family are currently 11 and 9 years old.

I attended a small Primary School. When I graduated in Grade Six there were about sixty students attending the school. My graduating class had six girls. (Hi there guys!)
finished my Psychology degree in 2004 at RMIT Melbourne. I currently
plan to take up a graduate entry social work degree next year following
my trip around Europe in September
Although I have always had a need for a creative outlet, I have played violin since I was 8yrs old, and achieved Grade 4 with AMEB, drawing is the one that has maintained the most passion. it started with a schoolgirl obsession with Leonardo DiCaprio, about the time of Baz Luhrmann's 'Romeo and Juliet'. I started to draw the posters of the baby-faced star, soon to become obsessed with portraiture itself. My first pictures are dated around 1998 and since then I have attended classes and practiced relentlessly to better my sketches. It helped to motivate me when a portrait ended up with a likeness to the actor or actress I'd drawn. And so I began to draw and draw, and this inevitably led to writing this sentence. I have started this web page to show the world my drawings, 'cause I must admit I do like to show off every now and again.
