I first launched my artistic career in New Zealand in 1976 after I abandoned formal art training and opted to learn the craft of painting landscapes by direct action — capturing the beauty of the New Zealand wilderness on canvas. Today, more than 30 years later, I wanted to make a journey that would mark my re-emergence into the art world after two decades of global travels and social activism, and so I decided to capture the places, faces and homes of America on camera and on canvas through a national tour called Across the USA from the Eyes of an Artist. My focus today is on promoting art for change.

Just one night out can make a big difference in how you view your trip.
You could also tell your kids that a credit card is for some more serious expenses, than pocket money they have. Help them to sort out in the great variety of credit card deals.
But both cases are fraught with danger. First, a young consumer, being financially immature and sometimes being unable to evaluate adequately their financial abilities, could damage the credit of the person that helps them with a card. Second, any financial misstep can hurt a young person’s credit score.
