I like to write on the trains even more so with the wonderful line arriva put on for our well-being. The train line runs from Manchester to Holyhead. It has captured my imagination on many occasions


Over the glasses you, know the type.
Thick set, yes you bet.
Strong view.
Dis-spite been mail led.
Express to impress.
Alluding to depress.
Still watching.
Tie tight, toe shine, bright man.
Scorning face, forming.
The vote box nation warning.
View forming, word watching.
You see him think, furrowed.
I don’t like you, I dislike that, get back

Or maybe I’m wrong…

Hello! I get about a bit so here about me first. I am a visual artist and poet who works within the context of fine art. My work is grounded in documentary, exploring the inner beauty of everyday life through various lens based media. Notions of nostalgia and social commentary are present, but from a definite northern working class perspective. Instinctively I exploring the townscapes of North Wales and the North West, often producing work that reflects the every day minutiae of life.
