About me...

MAN OF MANY HEADS.......

...& most of them cardboard. Yes, Cardboard Is King! My stage act tries to bring out the 'strangeness' in 'the ordinary'. Just one man, one voice (you'll be lucky if you get any more than that) & his home keyboard...& some stage props. I write BIG songs about the small, but important, things in life, such as biscuits, packaging, The Batman, Godzilla & monkeys - to name but a few. No subject is too small to be BIG. I think I'll adopt that as my next catch-phrase!

The Arty bit...

Drawing, painting, sound installation, video, audio work & private Life Drawing Classes....

This is my 'other side', & I suppose it's what I trained for all those years ago at art college. I run private Life Drawing sessions. (info below). For more details & artwork, click on the 'Art' & 'Images' drop-down menus.

PRIVATE LIFE DRAWING CLASSES - Wednesday mornings @ Cottingham Methodist Church Hall, Cottingham; Thursday mornings @ Skidby Village Hall, Skidby; Friday mornings @ St. Cuthberts Church Hall, Hull (this one is a casual 'drop-in' session). All sessions are from 10:00 am  -  midday. Please contact me for more details. Sessions are on a termly-basis of x10 weeks, that usually fit in with school dates.
