biography & work
I live in Liverpool and have taught Creative Writing and English for 23 years.
My first significant work was exhibited at Tate Liverpool in their Violence exhibition in 1989. The life size figure hung from the ceiling and combined sketches, poetry, glass and plastic.
I enjoy working with mixed media, especially photography and collage but some of my more conventional writing is on this site.

from... and Zoetrope, an anthology of poems about desire and loss.
The 'Alt' exhibition, in Prescot Museum, showed my photographs and a sequence of nine poems, between January-March 2010. Each poem used a different narrative voice to present people who lived or grew up along the path of the River.
In 2009, 'Throwing out the Rule Book: The poetry of William Carlos Williams and E E Cummings', appeared in emagazine ; Issue 46 December.
My journals appeared in Manchester's Holden Gallery for their Reflective Stories: Sketchbooks and Journals exhibition in 2008 and in 2009, may poem 'Spring Circus' appeared in Birth and Rebirth: Writing for Dr Banardos.
Other poems, such as 'Point' and 'Seige' appeared in Smoke Magazine. And 'The Teddy Boy and The Beehive' were part of Liverpool 800, in 2007.
