Rachel is an up and coming artist living in Brighton.
Her background is theatrical design, but her passion is to paint. She paints
from the heart and says about her work: "The more I paint the more I realise
that I am simply a vehicle to
manifest and deliver magical images to this earth and through creating the work
I am transformed and my life transforms around me. My paintings guide me to
where I need to be next, like messengers of the soul, nature the cosmos or
perhaps even God. My work is not religious but naturally spiritual." Rachel is
desperate to paint full time and is looking for sponsorship.
Stephen is a published artist/writer living in north eastern New York.

Just hope they come up with a cure for hair loss sooner than not, yeh? It's not, like, I'm a monk, yeh? See what I mean: not religious, like, but my god this can't go on. Shave it! Sod that! And look like everyone else? Nah...it's the Abraham Lincoln pigtail stays, like.
So, living in Yorkshire UK (geddit?: yuk?); some previous life pay-back; and, well, I get by, I guess. These days is that enough?
What more do you want?
What do you people want from me?

Michael Murray wishes to thank Tom Jenks for the chance to look outside this cosy life to the peopled world once in a while.
Ladies and gentlemen, allow me this exquisite opportunity for introducing moi: flaneur and cosmopolitan aesthete; at home equally in the boudoir of Llewlyn-Bowen, as the inter-changing rooms of the Old Vic (and. believe me, I have tried them both. Several times.).
O wrap me in your crinolines my farthingale girl. Yes, ladies-man for the estimable John Betjeman. I admit it now: where he did the work it was oneself got the girl.
Although originally from Lisbon (my dears, to know Lisbon in the old days!) and born southern Africa, my perambulations occaisionally allow me a moments' respite between pages of crispest cream vellum. Or as sop to your modern world, the flickery-flick of a vdu.
Alas I must fly at last, and so, dear friends, allow me this last toodle-oo.
