About the Artist
(Here follows the type of pretentious claptrap I was advised to put on this site!)
I would like to tell you all about my extremely exciting life. How I was born of English parents in a gypsy caravan in Ireland. Brought up for a while by a Tibetan Bendictine monk in Kathmandu, who taught me Thomist philosophy. Lived for many years in India enduring hardships and danger until I was able to return to the land of my Fathers, England. Escaping death by a hair's breadth as I passed through Russia on my way home. (That would be a tale to tell, but I would be afraid of reprisals from the communist 'Old Guard')
How I studied Art from many teachers from cultures as diverse as the North American Inuit to the people of Patagonia. Eventually to become a Teacher myself. My students ranging from a million-heiress in Milan to a street fighter from Philadelphia. My paintings, drawings etc. have hung in galleries all over the world.
I made a fortune and lived a life of luxury but lost it all on the gaming tables of Las Vegas.
(Unfortunately, the reality is much less exciting so I won't bore you with it. And anyway, all that lot would have worn me out! I'd rather just pop up to the shops. I would have liked to study Thomist philosophy though!).

This bit is true.
Present projects include a pen and ink and pastel drawing and designs for needlework and embroidery. I have written and illustrated a couple of children's books but they haven't been published..........yet.
I am currently engaged in doing a set of pen and ink illustrations for something very exciting! I'll tell you all about it when I'm allowed. Shhhh!
