About Dion

Australian artist and observer of things.. all kinds of things. I like a wide variety of art, from the weird and wonderful to the bold and beautiful.. and everything in between.


  1. that artist that ate the corgi, definately sick!!

  2. Art without vomit…. I saw an interesting show of sculpture by Paul Smith and paintings by Nicola Slattery which opened on Satureday in Cambridge UK. It’s still on and runs for a few weeks … worth a visit unless you only rate shock art or sick in which case you will be very dissapointed.

  3. Earl, remember to put the http:// in front the www of your website address, otherwise, if you start with www it comes up as an error.

    eg, your link looks like this to me..


  4. Thanks for the advice. Looking back upon many years of experience I find that much in life come up as “an error”.
