Al Smith - The Musician
Al's started playing in bands in the 60's, and as a very young child was curious to what the strange vibe that came from the house next door was. He was later to discover that it was Barry Gibb on one of his earliest musical ventures,  jamming with the neighbour. Al's had many fine musical moments with some of the greatest musicians including Jimmy Barnes, Jeff Healey, Quan  "Mr Regurgatator" Yeomans, Phil Manning, and  Bullamakanka. Check out the reviews which has  interesting  quotes, by some legendary people.
Al Smith - The Artist
Al's been painting  and drawing for over two decades, and has studied under the guidance of  elder artists including James Holmyard. As a member of the  Queensland art group Access Arts, he keeps busy with regular exhibits, and uses numerous mediums. The styles of art range from abstracts to animals, and caricatures. The technology cycle has also brought him to designing web sites and you can see this within this, and his other sites. It has been a thrill for Al to have had his art hanging in the same exhibits with great artists including Ken Done.  You might like to check out the Art Gallery which has several examples of Als' work. You could always listen to some music clips while you wait.
