Welcome. I work freelance as an artist designer writer (hence ‘Art Design Narrative’) – sometimes combining these in projects such as graphic video commissions – as a part of community arts programmes, for instance. I tutor art groups and work with a musical collective (virtually all musicians) under our banner of baseline people.

Here you’ll find drawings, paintings and prints, as well as short video pieces (some with music). My core drawing interest is with life drawing and the ongoing search to make it

relevant to now.

But you can also find portrait sketches, landscapes and still lives, graphic art, plus a bit of other silly stuff chucked in for good measure.

can find  ‘experimental’ projects – such as interviews and narratives – trails started down and to be followed further when I can. ‘Life in 2-Dis a theme that begins to explore our lives lived out through the screens of movie, TV and computers.

Under ‘learning resources+‘ is practical content that I hope will be of help to students of the art classes I run. But there’s munchy stuff there for anyone with an interest in the philosophy of visual arts to chew over.

Under ‘drawing books‘ and ‘watercolour books‘ you’ll find publications that support the practical projects I run specifically for those courses, so that anyone anywhere can try them for themselves.

I do take on commissions for artwork – so if you’ve something in mind – be it a ‘straight forward’ landscape London watercolour(a view significant to you and a Anglesey landscape paintingfriend, for instance) or a portrait (even one with a cheeky speech/thought bubble or two!), why not get in touch? Though many of the images on this site are sold, I’ve often made new pieces for people based on the ones here.
