Writing, painting, having a chat…
I am a fine art graduate, not that that’s particularly relevant. I battle depression on a daily basis and on the whole these days I’m winning. I live in my beloved hometown of Liverpool, where I do a bit of painting and decorating, write stuff, paint stuff, take pictures, research family history on behalf of myself and other people, and comfort eat. I’ll hopefully soon be podcasting stuff too…

I’m slowly getting back into making paintings.
I wonder a lot and write a bit about my mental health. Keeping the men in white coats at bay.
Live well. Eat well. Chips.
