For lovers of History, Art and Travel.
This saga chronicles life and world travels as an artist and the title refers to an amusing phrase that sent me off on my artistic adventure.
I hope my story will inspire readers to be brave in their artistic endeavours and possibly travel to wonderful places … or just enjoy accompanying me on the journey.
