Thanks for visiting my blog!

Back at the beginning of the 1980’s I graduated from Newcastle University with a Fine Art degree. I would have loved to continue working creatively as an artist, but unfortunately this dream disappeared as life and work got in the way.

Work does still get in the way, but I am intent on re-igniting the passion, and remembering the wonderment of creating art. To this end I’m picking up a sketchbook and beginning to create something again and I would like to share it with you on this blog together with the thoughts, ideas and inspirations that go with it.

I’m not sure where these small humble beginnings will lead, but hopefully to bigger and greater things across the horizon. I hope you will join and share with me this journey
