[ABOVE] Self portrait with bandaged ear, after Vincent Van Gogh. "As far as I can judge, I am not actually mentally ill." (VVG, 1889)

I’m an artist and writer, or a writer and artist. Sometimes I’m other things, too. I currently live in the east of England, but I work nationally and internationally. I’ve worked extensively in China and Japan. I’ve been artist in residence at the University of Edinburgh’s Genomics Policy & Research Forum and New Media Scotland, among other places. I’m also the author of two published novels and numerous short stories. My most recent publication is a non fiction book about the art world called ‘Career Suicide’. I also write an art blog of the same name.
