Hello, welcome to my website. Thanks for visiting. I always wondered what I wanted to be when I grew up. Now, more half a century of working life on, I may have some idea. As I move beyond the ‘apprenticeship’ stage, I identify three strands to my life’s work: interweaving, with each informing and benefitting the others, though separated here for clarity.

 

Please feel free to browse the website, but be aware I am currently making significant changes to reflect our current situation, my return to Yorkshire to live, and my ongoing learning and development… perhaps I’m still not properly grown up yet after all.

Back to Nature… again (Part Two)

I’ve always been keen on the small. Maybe it’s because I’m not much over five foot myself, but I’ve always preferred small houses, small cars, small decorative items rather than grand installations. The miniature rather than the wall-sized painting. The pearl earring rather than dangling hoop. It’s the same with the […]

Back to Nature… again (Part One)

My third-wave nature sensibility has both nothing and everything to do with the current state of social isolation under Covid-19. What seems like a thousand years ago, as a socially isolated only child – no siblings, few extended family members, and not allowed friends – I played out for hours on […]

Just popping back a hundred million years…

It’s not often you get the chance to jump in the car, drive for fifteen minutes or so, step into an ordinary house in an ordinary street, and arrive 100 million years before even your most distant ancestors were the proverbial twinkles…   The adventure began as Robert, guardian of the […]
