Welcome to my Art and Stories Blog

On this site,  you’ll find an assortment of art work, art books and stories to view.
For some of the work, there are photos and sketches of work in progress, with text to describe how things were done.  There’ll be simple tips on techniques which I’ve acquired over the years.

Maybe you’ll have a go yourself; I hope so.  Maybe something you see will prompt other ideas of your own; I hope so.  If they do, it would be great to hear from you.  I’d love to know where it takes you, and I’d love to be inspired by what you do and the ideas you have.
My art work has been tucked away in cupboards and drawers, some of it for decades.  Now I’m dusting it down, and putting it out there.  It needs an airing.

None of this work has been publicly displayed and rarely sees the light of day.  Once a piece of work is completed, it gets “filed” away, so putting it on this website is like displaying it in a gallery, and giving it a raison d’etre.
I hope you enjoy my site.
