Since retiring as faculty registrar of Birmingham Institute of Art & Design in 2008, I’ve devoted myself to translating (from Czech and Portuguese), to the creation of Ñspel, and to painting and drawing. I live with my wife Helena, who’s a horticultural magician*, in Coventry, England.
I also use my blog to disseminate the poems – or doggerel, as he calls them – of my elderly Liverpudlian friend Thomas Hardly, who, unfortunately, is computer-illiterate.
The painting in the background above is a “Johnson-Pollock” that I did with grandchildren Eve, Louis and Max. We had a splashing time.
