I am an art and architectural historian. I write features for art magazines and newspapers, with many books published, on art movements, and artists, including Hieronymus Bosch, Vincent van Gogh and Rembrandt, William Morris, Egon Schiele and Edward Hopper.





3 February was a a brilliant night, The Cumbria Life Culture Awards event was attended by the CEO, and the Chairman of the Arts Council. Held at the fabulous Theatre by the Lake, Keswick, Cumbria. An amazing group of people, Cumbria Culture Award winners for poetry, writing, music, art, design, theatre, one-off culture events, and festivals categories, plus special awards for outstanding achievements were duly honoured. 

All winners revealed in next edition of Cumbria Life magazine.


I live in London and Cumbria. I joined Kingston University as a visiting lecturer in 2002/3, teaching art, architecture and design history. It included taking student groups on many study trips, including Italy to research Renaissance Florence, and Ancient and Baroque Rome.

I write for commercial and academic publications, with books on art for several publishers. I write travel features too, and when possible, visit places that hold my interest, from the Cotswolds to Casablanca; Den Bosch to Dublin.


On these pages you will find information on commissioned books, and interviews.
