In January, Elsa got new neighbors.  She greeted them with apple cinnamon tea.
It gets so cold, here, they told her, shivering in overstuffed parkas.  Snow had turned to mud in their front hall—an unavoidable side-effect of moving in winter.  Elsa nodded along to their complaints and observations, silently brewing the tea in their kitchen.  They were young; they had big plans.  Allison and Steve, newlyweds, just starting out.  They sat on the cold floor together, sipping with chapped lips.  The house filled with cinnamon.
In April, Allison knocked on Elsa's door.  We're pregnant!  White tea in a china teacup; the taste of flower petals and champagne.  The last caffeine for the next eight months.  Elsa let her keep the cup.
In May, Steve bought a carseat and a crib.  Elsa helped him carry it inside.  Flat-packed, but heavy.  Sturd

Back from London
We had a great time too!
It was the first time we'd ridden the fast train down to London and I was impressed, not just with the speed but with the comfort.  It arrived at Kings Cross at Sunday lunchtime and our hotel was just a short walk away.  We were able to check in and dump our bags and we were off to sample London.  ('We' being myself, my husband :icondavid-presents:, his mother Barbara and her friend Maria).
We had a good look around the area (walked a lot further then we realised but I'd got a street map and we figured out how to get back easily enough).  Barbara and Maria had a wonderful time, everything was so different to what they are used to and their cameras got plenty of use.
On Monday we took the bus tours with the Original Bus Company.  If you have limited time to see the sights, this is perfect!  We had a guy called Eddie who did the commentary; for two fun filled hours he told us about London, pointing out t

The Day After the Funeral
Her Husky arises every few minutes,
in order to expose different parts of its mottled coat
to the flickering fire,
the dog turns in a lazy stop-start orbit
of fur and slurry-jawed yawns.
Beside the same dying flames,
a leather-bound Bible rests
on my Grandmothers lap,
an hour or so ago
the old rocking chair creak
fell silent,
now her head of silver hair
slouches to a side,
bifocals searching for escape
from the tip of her wrinkled nose,
the slow purr of her outward breath
makes a comforting sign
of late-evening life.
I should really venture out
to the dark dewy fields,
out to the open night stars,
to gather more wood,
out to the cold midnight breeze
that chimes the patio flutes
and scratches the screen doors itch,
but not before I finish this job I started,
listing the names
of the dead I know, (or once knew)
on old writing paper I found today,
in my Grandfathers study,
a list far too long for a boy my age,
a list whose names now include his.

By trade I'm now a Horologist - I repair watches, although my art has taken a back-burner for the present I still create it when I find the time to do so!

I'm a Wolverhampton university graduate & remain a semi-professional artist/freelance artist
I dabble in a little of everything including crafts, traditional media and photography although i tend towards Digital art specifically fractal manipulation work.

I create and provide stock and resources for use on deviantART and occasionally try my hand at literature.

I've had work published in magazines & submitted to charity exhibitions. I held my first solo exhibition back in May 2012 and took part in a collaborative exhibition in the same year and continue to showcase my work at small venues and online.


:spotlight-right: Commission Work :spotlight-left:

I'm open for commissions!

The price of a piece of work will depend a lot on what exactly you would want me to create and how long it will take me to complete - I’m open to negotiations - and please consider that when it comes to traditional works there would be a cost for posting!
If it is a digital commission i will email your piece to you full-sized without watermarks etc.
just ask or drop me a note for more info!
