I grew up in London until my parents decided that they needed fresher air. We bundled ourselves up and drove to Devon, which is in the South West of UK. It is a beautiful but sleepy part of the world. By the time I left home I was aching for adventure.

Adventure I got…

I now find myself living in Brighton. I’ve been here for six years and can’t imagine being anywhere else.

I’m a dog person. Dogs beat cats any day. If you think otherwise, you’re wrong. I have a cross-bred Collie/Afghan Hound. He’s fast as lightning and daft as two planks. He’s bloody fantastic.

This is a painting I did of him:Gus2

He’s an old man now but still likes mud.

I also like mud. We have that in common.
