Creative work

I try to make time for creativity, either alone or with others. I make photographs, paintings, poems, songs and creative projects.

I’ve put together a site called Graftage to share my poems with my images. I’ve also written quite a few pieces of creative non-fiction, some of which have been published by the Dark Mountain project, in several books and on blogs.

You can see my photos here on Flickr and, for a shortcut to some of the most visually strong, see my portfolio sets.

I enjoy singing and guitar-playing, performing at an open mic every fortnight.

I like to organise creative projects. In 2015, I delivered Lighthouse Songs, enabling children to create and perform songs as part of a concert to celebrate Orford Lighthouse (which is threatened by rising seas). More locally, I help the Hill Station curate art projects, such as Underhillians, and I’ve helped organise the Garlick Man and Night of the Beasts solstice parades. I also do projects together with my family, such as an installation on tree diseases called Fruiting Bodies.

I run a web-based campaign called Beuysterous, encouraging creative actions for trees and forests. At first, I set up some mass actions such as Tree Love Week, but now review exhibitions and artworks about trees and ecology, and keep a Pinterest board and Facebook group going.

Apart from all these activities, and more, I find creativity in everything I do, whether it’s work, supporting other organisations or travelling.
