I was pleasantly surprised when I woke up this morning and found this picture in my email inbox. Paris is calling my name – literally.

This is where my European engagement will take me… this is the theatre my live show belongs on – and it just so happens to be my namesake


Check out this poster from a show staged there: Nono, by Sacha Guitry
… reminds me of my show last night and I absolutely love it

“Visionary builds what dreamers imagined.”

I Am An Artist

ARTIST> One who professes and practices an art in which science and taste preside over the manual execution.

An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision.
James Whistler


An artist is always alone – if he is an artist. No, what the artist needs is loneliness.
Henry Miller

If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.
John F. Kennedy


Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term Art, I should call it ‘the reproduction of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the soul.’ The mere imitation, however accurate, of what is in Nature, entitles no man to the sacred name of ‘Artist.’
Edgar Allan Poe



God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant and the cat. He has no real style, He just goes on trying other things.
Pablo Picasso

The man who never in his mind and thoughts travel’d to heaven is no artist.
William Blake


The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize.
Robert Hughes


A record deal doesn’t make you an artist; you make yourself an artist.
Lady Gaga
