Biography


I sculpt paint, and draw, this is what I do, I try hard.

I went to art college.
I have exhibited in: empty shops,
on the streets of our world,
in big art houses.

Rich Nobby folk have brought my work.
Not so rich folk have also brought my work.
Folks who have turned to the dark side have tried to buy my work.
I have given work away.

You may have seen my work in the Big Issue.
You may have seen my work in shiny shiny books.

You can always see my work on the web for free.


I want to contribute
I strive to make a difference

No Artist Statement From Me"! "Bullshit Stinks"!
I am  ashamed and embarrassed by the art world,  it’s a sewer!  I will plough my own furrow.
