Hello, I am a Danish artist with a distant, never fully "substantiated" background as a translator. Lived 4 years in London and thus acquired a taste for curries and UK comedies - vindaloo and Coogan, eg. Need to practice my spoken English, and my written ditto too I guess (make my own Indian food) If you feel/find you have the time to chat via Skype now and then, let me know. I, in turn, will keep you posted when something happens on the painting front : -). And I am good!
Skype name: fangok

visited your website Sep 30, 2006

Hi Moggy,

I've just visited your website. I don't know much about art, but I enjoy it (going to art galleries, museums, etc.), and I liked some of your paintings very much.
Congratulations on your art! Thanks for your sharing it with us
Best regards and have a nice weekend!

Not very helpful but... Sep 30, 2006

Hi Morten,
unfortunately I am not the right person to help you practice you English (mine is getting worst every day)...
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know I really like your paintings (and Indian food too), especially those with the cats - as you told in your message, you're good!

Have a nice weekend!

Artists and translators Oct 1, 2006

Hi Moggy
You may not have realized it yet, but as things happen - many translators are artists too - painters, singers etc. - so you're in the right place indeed

However, I would advise editing your posting above and removing the email address - people can easily find you using the messaging feature on your page anyway - spam robots are restlessly harvesting email addresses from forums and you could end up being flooded with not quite the kind of emails that you're expecting

(painter herself too)

Tah very much, and keep it coming..... Oct 1, 2006

Thank you ever so much for the positive feedback I am not looking for particular accents or native speakers of English, just someone (or more) with a reasonable command of the lingo, really....One of my best friends is Irish, and her accent certainly differs from the Queen's English I was taught. However, she speaks perfect English.
Maybe I should use this forum more often as a testing ground for my latest work....
My girlfriend is currently updating my site, so stay tuned (it happens every 6 years or so).
