My on-line diary began in the 1990's from my studio in the North of England. After a lapse of ten years, I resumed posting from my present studio on the Caribbean island of Dominica.
From the far beginning, the intention has been to give an insight into my working methods, and to share the triumphs, trials and tribulations of work-in-progress.
My diary pages are followed by thousands of artists, art students and art lovers in over 50 countries.

A few generations ago, a craftsman turned his hand to all manner of things. My grandfather was just as much at home repairing clocks and fairground traction engines as he was cleaning windows. I could sense his ghost – and that of my father - looking over my shoulder as I successfully completed a very tricky piece of machining to an accuracy of 1/10th the diameter of a human hair. In turn, I told my son Tristan, you’d better watch carefully, you might never see the likes of this again. Maybe one day, all three of us will be looking over his shoulder.
