People want to achieve success in life, but it often seems out of reach. According to history's greats, all you just need to take the first step.

Story
Tagline
Papier-mache jewellery designer/maker, mixed media enthusiast, painter, YouTube video tutorial maker, writer, photographer and collector of interesting and inspiring people and things.
Introduction
I consider myself very fortunate to be able to live in the South Hams in Devon, truly an area of outstanding natural beauty.
I travel whenever time allows and bring back sketchbooks over-flowing with ideas to work on in my studio as well as hundreds of photographs and various ephemera.
I research, write, paint, make papier-mâché bowls etc and jewellery, often made from fragments of my paintings. I also run workshops and make tutorials for my YouTube Channel.
I use papier mache, mixed media, resin, metal leaf and found objects such as fragments of clay pipe stems from the River Thames and beach-combing finds.
Bragging rights
I have survived it all and thrived and I love life.
