My on-line diary began in the 1990's from my studio in the North of England. After a lapse of ten years, I resumed posting from my present studio on the Caribbean island of Dominica.

From the far beginning, the intention has been to give an insight into my working methods, and to share the triumphs, trials and tribulations of work-in-progress.

My diary pages are followed by thousands of artists, art students and art lovers in over 50 countries.

A visible voice

A word of advice that I give to art students is: if you’ve nothing to say, go into banking or some other pursuit. Throughout history, painters, poets, writers and musicians have made their voice heard. This is why, under dictatorship, artists are the first to be censored.

Over the years I have tried not to let the side down. My campaigns have ranged from protecting the rights of a child to the built environment. My latest crusade concerns the re-housing of the hundreds of Dominicans made homeless from Tropical Storm Erica. You will find my commentary at the following link:
