I started my on-line diary in the 1990's from my studio in the North of England. After a lapse of ten years, I resumed the enteries from my present studio on the Caribbean island of Dominica. From the far beginning, my intention was to give an insight into my working methods, and to share the triumphs, trials and tribulations of work-in-progress.
Now, by way of a change, these pages will focus on finished work, both recent and retrospective. As Dominica has recently been ranked as one of the least visited places on earth, it is one way of bringing the mountain to Mohammed.

Yesterday was Creole Day here in Dominica.It is a day when, to celebrate Independence, the whole island turns out in National Dress.Here is the parade in the capital Roseau.Also, our oldest daughter Tania (19) and our son Tristan (9) doing their bit.
I promise, next year I’ll put a madras band around my best hat.
