so many ideas have been started, worked, planned, failed, abandoned, succeeded.
Celtic Dragons 2012-?
The font, St. James Church, Avebury, Wiltshire.
Following my interest in dragons through European mythology led me to my local church. The font in St. James displays two Celtic/Saxon dragons worthy of close study. Working with the Church (diocese of Salisbury) I set out to ‘unwrap’ the image around the font. Lay it flat. No-one is known to have ever done it, so I agree.
Remember, I come at this as an artist not a historian. I just show what I see, not what I think.
As it happened, National Geographic were making a study documentary of ‘dragons’ and Avebury was on their list.
Dr. Janina Ramirez and I filmed for a while to camera about the font, and my drawings. I hope we meet again.
The programme was only aired in the US. Dec. 2012

Fury (TV Movie) 2014
The project is ongoing. I intend to produce an engraved copper plate when I have all the details. Perhaps 2015?
Pink-Circle: 2014 A bold attempt to combine poetry with visual imagery. A collaboration between a man and a woman, intended to bring out the essence of the fusion.
