About Me


I am a UK artist and printmaker living and working in Hastings, East Sussex. I lived previously in Rye for ten years and before that in Kings Cross, London for fifteen years, As a teenager I lived and went to school in southern Africa.
I like to write about art (of which I know a little) etching (of which I know quite a bit) and write somewhat scathing observations on life in general (of which I am still getting the hang)
I have written a few satirical lyrics which I have performed at times to the accompaniment of mediocre guitar and vocal skills.
I like cooking, playing computer games and reading (or rather listening these days)
