He’s an English artist who likes to use unusual surfaces like stainless steel or fiberboard in stead of canvas. He’s been known to pour, drop and even use a syringe to get his colors on to his surface [...]
I think I’ve mentioned before that Katie Ridder is one of my absolute favorite interior designers. I know I did a review of her recent book. In fact, I like her style so much that I can’t hold it against her (well not much anyway) that [...]
