In case no one told you today:
You’re beautiful.
You’re loved.
You’re needed.
You’re alive for a reason.
You’re stronger than you think.
You’re going to get through this.
I’m glad you’re alive.
Don’t give up!
— anonymous

Bob once lived here. He now lives with a wonderful family in Hayward, California. 

the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars
— Jack Kerouac

Thank you for stopping by.

Originally from England, I lived in Bristol for many years; home to Banksy, MassiveAttack, Portishead, Tricky, and Wallace and Gromit.   I arrived in Oakland, California, in 2012 via 12 years living in the mountains of Colorado. I have worked in education since 1993. For creative outlets I paint, mountain bike, and run. Please feel free to contact me to say hello or talk about art. 


The first set of prints the day they arrived from the printer. Available for sale here or at 'Bay Made', Oakland, California.
