I recently dug out some old slides from boxes I’ve had knocking around for years and years, and sent them off to be professionally scanned. So now I can see the type of work I was producing over 30 years ago, which has been mind-blowing. Also, quite encouraging. I need to plan to think about preparing to do some more painting.Read More

Common ground is a series of photos of (mainly) south London commons and common land. I've created a new gallery, and you can see more of the series in this Flickr album.
