I started drawing in 2008. I draw most days. I like to draw people, things and places as I find them, as they present themselves to me. I draw fellow passengers whenever I'm on the tube. I also like to draw urban landscapes, but I have less time for that. I go to life drawing sessions when I can. I also draw when I go to museums. I've been doing watercolours for some time. Here are some of them.
I started sailing in my late thirties, as one does. I've sailed a lot since then, more than 8000 nautical miles. I've sailed in many different boats with many different people in many different places. Since 2009 I've owned Scallywag, a Dehler 31. I keep her at Tollesbury, in the East Coast of England. Here is my sailing log.
I learnt to play the saxophone when I was young, but then I stopped. A few years ago I started again. I play classical music. I like the classical saxophone repertoire. I know it well. I've been playing saxophone and piano music with a friend for a few years now. We play most weeks. This feels like an enormous privilege.
