Welcome

Thank you for visiting my website. I'm sorry to say I haven't updated it for a few years, but as at August 2017 I'm about to start! My photo gallery is really out of date and doesn't seem to be working properly which I hope to fix very soon.

I plan to include new sections on the following:

Photography - I take travel, landscape and other images and am a contributor to Alamy - check out my images there. My main interest is travel photography and I am happy to undertake commissions. I have visited over 45 countries and organised and led a number of trips for the RPS Travel Group in recent years.

Writing - as an occasional freelance writer I have had articles published in newspapers, magazines, journals, newsletters, etc and contributed articles and images to a local writing group I belong to - Skiddaw Writers, for our first book 'Beyond the Misty Fells', available on Amazon. I am happy to undertake writing commissions.

Art - as an occasional dabbler I sometimes produce a painting I really like, so have started to produce prints and cards which I sell at my exhibitions and craft fairs.

Talks to groups - I give talks to groups by arrangement, for example WI and U3A, on such subjects as 'Travels with my camera', 'Ticking off the Bucket List', 'My Around the World in 80 Days', 'Around the World Westwards', 'Around the World Eastwards' and on particular countries I have visited such as Australia, Burma, Bhutan, Costa Rica, Japan in cherry blossom season, New Zealand, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Norway - Aurora spotting, USA, Western Canada and others. If you would like a talk for your group please get in touch.

Jewellery - I have recently started making jewellery and love it! I have started selling my jewellery at craft fairs in Keswick and Ambleside organised by 'Northern Crafts'. The next one is on Sunday 13th August in Keswick, followed by Friday 18th August in Keswick and Saturday 19th August in Ambleside. I hope to add jewellery sales to this site soon.

Exhibitions - I hold exhibitions of my paintings, photographs, and jewellery occasionally. I had an exhibition at the Alex Boathouse at Talkin Tarn near Brampton earlier this year and have another one there from September 30th to October 11th.

It's probably going to take me a while to do all the updating, so when it's finished, I hope you enjoy browsing my site.
