My latest article for The Sherborne Times, describing the life of a small scale cut flower farmer. The Sherborne Times is the most excellent local magazine, which is having a great effect on the whole of the local community, getting everyone together and highlighting the wealth of talent that exists in our small Dorset town here in South West England.

I was delighted to visit the Singapore American School in November and December as Consultant to the Art Department of the Elementary School. This blog post tells the story of an extraordinary time with the brilliant children and their talented teachers. Loved every minute!

2017 has been an incredible year for Helen, Tabitha and myself. We've started a cut flower farm in the heart of Dorset, just outside our home town of Sherborne. We've had a fantastic first year and you can learn all about our journey on our website here.
Happy Christmas to you all!

Black Shed Cut Flower Farm is born!
Helen and I decided to expand our flower growing activities after a fantastic year in 2016. We have an incredible site and wonderful supportive partners, so the fun is about to begin.
It already has, we have approx 4000 plants and 500 dahlias waiting to go in to our carefully prepared plot!

Been having fun building dinosaurs...
Created to help publicise the new M&Co range of Dinosaur Roar! children's clothing here in the UK.
Nearly finished a mini tour of the UK visiting loads of schools all over the UK. Wish I could have had this with me but it wouldn't fit in the train...

As the madness mounts, I had to get out in the beautiful countryside that surrounds us here on the Dorset/Somerset borders. This hill lies in a valley between Corton Denham Beacon, Parrock Hill and Cadbury Castle. Hallowed ground indeed.
