I am a visual artist and writer, mainly of poetry. The two aspects are essential to each other, my visual work often being loaded with meaning. 

After a degree in Art, I taught in London, until my interest in Japan took me East in the 1990s. The three years I spent in Yokohama and Tokyo have profoundly influenced my art and my own personal outlook. Whilst in Yokohama, I immersed myself in a community of artists and Butoh dance performers. This began a dialogue between East and West, which I find still playing itself out in my work today.
