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.

While buoyed up with our friend’s positive response, we declared the portrait finished and began taking the “waste mould” from the clay, the first stage of which involves taking courage in both hands and throwing wet plaster over the clay image. The term “waste mould” is apt, for if it goes wrong, all is lost. Hence, dust to dust!

As I’m much too poor, I find the only way that I can show my love to those who have stood by my side, is by the gift of a painting. This I was able to do a couple of days ago for my dear friend Athlene Douglas–Murdock, Director of the Dominica Institute for the Arts. To round off two days of art workshops Athlene invited the tutors to afternoon deserts at Batibou Beach. While the others were eating cheese-cake, I was painting.
