My background and experience in visual arts has developed to include writing and playing around with ideas for screenplays and movies. On Thursday 23 July 2020 I embarked on a serious folly to write one 500 word story every day for a year. This will produce 1 long story using 182,500 words in 365 parts. The reader will be able to rearrange parts as they go along - like a contemporary William S. Burroughs. You can support the project via my Patreon page (links are on the page via the website below). The first seven days are free to access online to give an idea of where the story has begun and where it might go. I don't know myself because they're written on the day. It looks like I'll be returning to work in a call centre soon - which obviously isn't the end of the world - but if that can be avoided so I can finish The Rings of Norwich (working title), and a play that could easily be performed with social distancing and whatnot, that would be marvellous. After all, this is already a lot of work.

- Flowers: a series of paintingsHere are six paintings inspired by the first series of the dark comedy tv series Flowers, written and directed by Will Sharpe, who also stars as Shun.

For me, as no doubt it is for many other peeps, it's a beautiful, funny, honest,

I developed and curated an exhibition of unfinished paintings by some of East Anglia's most renowned artists. The paintings were each in a different state of progression and the audience were invited to explore their views on when a painting is finished.
