I love making art, with paint and paper and ink & pixels, and I take work-in-progress pictures of pretty much everything I do  - a swirl of colour melting into colour, the outline of a leaf, a colour palette taken from an autumn oak leaf or a summer gooseberry, a page of a too-well-loved classic novel before I put it through the laser cutter, a jewellery piece before the last layer of paint goes on, or a prototype that doesn't work well enough to make it to market.

I need to eat, and buy paint, and take care of my disabled partner, and not make my own disabilities any worse, so please become a patron! You'll get to see all the work in progress photos (including the dozens that don't make it as far as Instagram), and you'll get to hear about what I'm doing before everyone else does, and learn much more about the techniques I use.

If you end up using what you learn from me to make your own art, including to sell, I'll be utterly delighted!

I'm really excited to see how other artists and designers might use that that first step to go somewhere entirely different to where I went, creating something new and interesting from something so familiar to me, and I'm hoping you can join me in this.
