I'm deeply romantic and fanatical about the landscape, present and past, around me on the border of Somerset and Wiltshire. I paint and write because of its effect on me.
In art I try to marry archaeology, folklore, history, sound, smell, music, poetry, in short all the senses, being alive.
I have just published a book (December 2017), a fictionalised history, called Flesh and Bones, about Frome and its landscape in the Dark Ages. It is being brought out by local and regional history publisher Hobnob Press. This is a fact and fiction book, synthesising in words all the things I talked about in above and in talks I gave 20 years ago in Frome and district. Look out for
Flesh and Bones of Frome Selwood and Wessex, at Hunting Raven Bookshop in Frome and Amazon.
The book covers Britons and Saxons, Fact and Fiction, Relics and Reliquaries, Heaven and Hell, Intrigue and Jealousy, Dumnonia and Wessex and King Athelstan. A time in Frome's history which is little understood or thought of!
