The written word

Over the past few months Luis and I have both been busy with projects close to our hearts. Luis was invited by Andreas Kunert to write a prologue for his new book: A legacy in stone. Andreas works on huge stone and pebble installations in his native Canada. The book covers his artistry in stone and is full of wonderful pictures of his work. Here is an excerpt:



Needless to say Luis loved writing this prologue and is really pleased with the finished piece. More information and photographs can be found on Andreas' website here: Andreas Kunert

About a year ago I had the privilege of been asked by Mary Turner to read through and comment on early drafts of a book detailing a forty year history of an Arts organisation I worked with back in the UK: Action Space Mobile. Mary has worked tirelessly in community arts since the 1960s and together with many other artists shaped and informed community arts provision both in the UK and further afield.


After a great deal of hard work by Mary, the book is now available to purchase on Amazon. It really is a feast on the eye with many captivating photographs and informative narrative. You can preview and purchase a copy here: Action Space Extended

I have also just re-launched my writing blog after a make-over and name change. I am busy transferring short stories but will be adding new material in the near future. Small tales and tittle-tattle - follow my progress by subscribing by email.
