Tanya...Aussie Chick who used to hang out over at the Door Magazine's Chat Closet (and drops by on occasion), has her own blog now. She's an artist, you'll find the link to her stuff on her blog. She and I had an eerily similar upbringing. So much so that we could have been brother and sister except I grew up in California and she grew up in Australia.
Check it out...she's pretty cool!
