A third of a collage from 1991. This section, based on an old wartime postcard about rationing is my favourite part. Probably thinking about being a parent at the time as Archie was born about a year later. Starting a family in your mid-forties is a scary prospect and I had feelings that we may have left it too late.

A kind of diary, a log, a ramble, nothing to do with the Flowerpot Men. My life as an artist, a collagist, a rubber stamper, a networker, a dad , a letter writer and a postcard maker. Observations about this and that in no particular order.
I grew up in the home counties around London during the 50's and 60's. Went to several art schools including Southend ,Chelsea and Manchester. Trained as a painter and printmaker but now mostly using collage. Collect novelty songs and old mail art amongst other things too numerous to mention.
