During my working life I used all sorts of different media and produced many kinds of work, so at different times I’ve thought of myself as a graphic artist, sometimes a textile artist, and sometimes a designer/maker, but really I’m all of these. I also take photographs, and I write, and some of my work has combined both writing and imagery – but these days I’m retired from professional work and mostly what I do is draw. Some of my current work in sketchbooks is on the Drawings page and on my postings on the Blog; this is where you’ll find my sketching project of the restoration work at Cliffe Castle Park during 2016 and 2017, Drawing The Work, and the posts about daily life and events in the park that I’ve called Life in The Landscape. For the most part the rest of the site is an archive of work that I’ve done throughout the last 20 years.

There are lots of ways all my different areas of work have overlapped, but there are common denominators: the first is landscape, nature, and the seasons; another would the interplay between fragility and strength, especially as things age and deteriorate, and the third is wellbeing – the search for ways in which we all try, in one way or another, to find wholeness and healing.
