I write, I illustrate. I am an artist, though recently my art has been the written word. I have embroidered segments of the cosmos, but currently I embroider family crests and heraldry. Most recently I have finished the first part of one of my projects, a series based on the Arthurian legends. The first instalment is available here.
I’ve had two modelling careers, one as a teenager and one in my twenties, and though I did well as a fashion model the success was of the non-paying and therefore unsustainable kind (high fashion magazines rarely pay you anything, don’t you know). I waste a bit of time on video games every now and then, but most of my time is spent either drawing or writing.
Favourite food, currently stoofvlees met frieten. Favourite movie? The Indiana Jones films (I’m an established and life-long fan of Harrison Ford). I was also particularly impressed by Terrance Malick’s The New World and Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival. Tolkien’s The Hobbit is a favourite book of mine and I always greatly enjoy The Mists of Avalon, though I wouldn’t be able to identify a particular favourite author. I have a general interest in fine art, sculpture and craft, and appreciate things that are done and made well. I occasionally read poetry, and though I mostly listen to classical music I do love some 80s synthesizers every now and then.
Currently I’m working on the illustrations for my children’s book, and have just finished Logres 2, the next book in The Future King series (out May 5 2020). You’ll soon find that I’m poor at blogging at regular intervals, so if there’s a long gap, just assume that I’m getting on with writing the next book in The Future King series.
