Beneath the Surface

Just a brief post to mention that I’ve a painting in the AIMs’ World Mental Health Day exhibition in Worcester during October, and that I talked about it to the Worcester News.   Metamorphosis


I am changing the layout of this website. This will not all be done in one go, but there will hopefully be minimum inconvenience – for instance, very few of the pages will change their addresses. The reason for it is that I am giving greater prominence to my visual work as this has become [Read the full story …]

Restructuring Time & Sorrow


I’ve restructured Time & Sorrow, fundamentally: The Dream-Cycle is now included in the longer piece, and so I’ve removed it from the website. I have, however, left the images. Time & Sorrow is now more what Ursula Le Guin calls a ‘story suite’, various stories, linked, but each with their own distinct tale and feel. [Read the full story …]

Exhibition – “Decay”

I belong to a self-facilitated art group that meets regularly on Mondays under the auspices of the Art in Minds Foundation (AIMs), though our socialising and creating continues outside. We have mounted at the Worcester Arts Workshop around the theme of ‘Decay’ to run most of the way through April 2015.

Come another year

Another year: another time when people often look to make improvements in their lives. I’m not one for New Year resolutions, though when spring starts to make its presence felt and the garden promises so much I am inclined to make plans, new ideas present themselves, and my energy levels improve markedly.

I’ve added three new pictures on my Other Images page. The last two – Within and In Another World – could be perceived as having connections to Kolchin: the background image of the Primordial Egg and the combining of elements. Hope for the World is more explicitly connected to this world alone; I am concerned with the [Read the full story …]

Unhappy with details


I had hoped to have progressed further with Time & Sorrow than has been the case. I will continue to post chapters on Wattpad, but any other form of publication is some way away. There are various reasons for this – three of the most important being: 1. I am unhappy with some of the [Read the full story …]

Time & Sorrow

I have put the first few chapters of Time & Sorrow up on Wattpad. These are not the final, polished ones, though I don’t envisage any substantial changes. I am also in the process of putting some of the associated images up on this website, as well as pages for

Away Too Long

I’ve noticed with some surprise that it’s over a month since I last left a post. In my defence, I have been busy working on a novella called Time & Sorrow which tells of Michael Raven’s time in Orestol, from the point of view of a young woman called Fial – perviously Nadja.
