Hello. I seem to have spent my life passing from one room to another, closing the door behind me.
I was born and brought up in a council-house in the
south-west of England.
I worked hard to get a scholarship and then go on to university.
After I graduated (in Sociology and Politics) I spent a memorable period in Franco’s Spain.
Following which I worked as an archeologist.
After that, drilling rigs. Then taught woodwork in a centre for deaf-blind people.
Did another degree (in design technology) and taught in schools and colleges.
Became a designer and maker of furniture.
Then moved, in 2005, with my partner Jane and our two oriental cats, to central France - but that, as they say, is another story…
