This site has been home to my Blog and grown from there. The Blog has been my largest and longest running art project and is very dear to my heart! It’s at over 1,000 posts, and averages about 4,000 page views a month. I share very openly and honestly about my life and work to humanise and connect with people. There are a number of ways to explore my Blog:

A. Most of the pictures on here I’ve taken myself. These are all watermarked to discourage theft.🙂 The rest I usually find on royalty free stock photo sites such as rgbstock.

Q. Why is your Blog called ‘Holding my childhood to ransom’?
A. It’s a line from a song by Nick Cave, one of my favourite artists.
