MOMO: 3 very different meanings of the word taken from the on-line ‘urban dictionary’: Japanese word for “peaches”. / The quintessential form of a woman, goddess, the perfect model of cuteness and innocence. Irresistable with the power to melt ones heart. / A generic insult used to describe one who is irritating, annoying, or an idiot. The novel of this name was given to me by a friend recently. (Thank you, and you know who you are!). It is a fantasy story by Michael Ende, about a remarkable child who tries to bring back stolen time to the people whose minds have been swayed by The Men In Grey to deposit as much ‘time’ in their Timesavings Bank for “later use”.

I am an artist who lives in an old Methodist Chapel in the heart of a small rural village on the Western edge of Dartmoor, Devon. I love wild places and make work about the pilgrimages I make. Most days revolve around the needs of my two ponies and two whippets and writing a book about one of my epic equine pilgrimage. Otherwise I spend my time creating: with camera, pencil, pen, brush or collage. Also blog posts about walking / thinking / observing / drawing. A spiritual quester who enjoys sharing my encounters with the mystery and magic of everyday life, both mundane and profound. Above all, always searching for the core of my creativity.
