About

I’m an artist and writer. This site attempts to collect and organise images and thoughts from my recent enquiries into some sort of order. There are various strands to my visual practice which include painting outside in my immediate environs of the Yorkshire Dales south area and in my studio in Ilkley.

Writing centres on an enquiry into the liminal space of the coastal shoreline and takes in aspects of Thalassology or, as it is knowin in some quarters ‘archipelagic criticism’, which is just an academic way of saying interested in the sea and coastline culturally-speaking. Presently I am working on a project with the working title ‘Signs from the Sea’ which juxtaposes verse with photographs made visiting the shorelines of Britain.
