About Me

I am a writer and artist from Bristol. My passion for drawing is only matched by that of mine for literature, so it seemed appropriate for me to combine the two and I began to draw the houses of writers I particularly admired. My first novel, Dylan and Dying – as the title suggests – has the presence of Dylan Thomas at its heart. I'm working on a second, Poshlust and hope to complete that shortly.

What ever happened to that beautiful boy?

OUTSET Bristol - 1st Birthday Party at Circomedia, Portland Square on 3 November 2011
More than 90 guests attended a celebratory event to mark Outset Bristol’s first birthday. The event was supported by Bristol-based ‘Trunki’ entrepreneur Rob Law MBE and the keynote speaker was The Right Honourable The Lord Mayor of Bristol.


Chuka Umunna MP – Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills – visited Outset Bristol today to experience first hand our business start-up support. Mr Umunna, Dawn Primarolo MP and three local Councillors, Cllr Jeff Lovell, Cllr Derek Pickup and Cllr Colin Smith, met the Outset Bristol team and seven new micro businesses created over the last 12 months with the support of Outset Bristol. 

The Outset Bristol clients attending the meeting embraced the opportunity to explain their business plans to Mr Umunna and to talk about the barriers micro-businesses face in starting up.

Mr Umunna commented: “It was a real pleasure to learn more about the great work that Outset Bristol is doing. I’d like to congratulate everyone involved. The work they do to help people achieve success, particularly those who are usually under-represented in business, is highly admirable and great to see in practice.”

The businesses represented included: The Creative Den, Katy’s Campers, Carpandgard, Due Torri Moto, Happy Dayz Cleaning Services, Homedraw and Sonja’s Cafe.

At the end of the event I was able to present Mr Umunna with a framed print of  my drawing of Chatterton's House - with the proviso he make note of the fact of its current condition and the hope he might bring some attention to bear. He seemed happy to accept the gift.
