Most of my artworks are created to the sound of music. Each stroke matches a beat, a word or a shape suggested by the song. It’s almost irrelevant what the song is. I just find something inside of it that’s asking my hand to dance. I remember this picture from 2016 being a great joy to make, but I can’t remember what the song was. I think it might have been something by Steely Dan.

I'm originally from Liverpool and worked as a national magazine journalist for more than 30 years before suffering a stroke at age 53. I started blogging as part of a neuro-rehabilitation programme and wrote the very first entries with one finger of my disabled left hand. Later, art became another therapy for me at Headway East London's Submit To Love studios. I blog regularly and volunteer as a teaching assistant, coaching schoolchildren in aspects of journalism.
