Wow!

What an amazing experience!!! I've been in front of the camera a fair few times, but Graham Neal from CTV News just did a wonderful feature on my art that I think really captures the essence of what I try and achieve with my artwork. I'm over the moon!!!!!

You can watch the video on their website, here; edmonton.ctvnews.ca/video?clip…

And if you want to find out more about me don't forget to visit my website www.flashballoons.com
Or my facebook page www.facebook.com/flashballoons

Thanks!!!!

I'm an entertainer and mostly self taught balloon artist who loves to create crazy large scale balloon sculptures of all sorts of wild things!
I enjoy lots of children's art and fantasy work, as I love to let my imagination run riot.
Please feel free to comment on my work, it's all original and most of these balloons take 6 or 7 hours to create so I love to hear your feedback.
If you have any questions about balloon twisting or I can help you join in my passion for this stuff, please don't hesitate to ask!

There's some incredible sculpture in your gallery; you're easily the most talented balloon modeller I've ever seen.
