About The Artwork

UN-FROG: who maybe would a woo-ing go. From my new UN-STONES series; a punk fusion of repurposed Western sea trash and meditative found stones in the great ‘viewing stone’ and ‘spirit stone’ appreciation of the Far East where the spirit of sacred mountains, animals, flowers and figures could all be found by the discerning in ‘found stones’. I found this stone in the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty so it must be beautiful by default. Probably. This is the first of my unique 1/1 punked up Japanese style suiseki assemblage of beeswaxed, frog-shaped, beach foraged, sea-smoothed, ironstone. The work also includes a re-purposed bicycle light; a retrieved sea plastics ‘snig’ nest; and lambs wool rubbing blanket. A discreet package of new art to satisfy anyone’s desire to rub a rock and turn a ‘frog’ into a ‘Prince’. Just be careful which ‘Prince’ you specify. Fair warning. Available boxed, stamped, numbered, signed with a lovely lifelong link to the artist.

Emergent artist from a scientific zygote. A previously successful writer (author of six non-fiction books). I find artistic beauty in small things but also take joy in the meaningfulness of the bigger picture. I forage. I beach-comb. I repurpose. I like the quirky and unpredictable mysteries of making found art from nature’s sculptural gifts. I also feel the urge to punk it up. It’s all beautifully complex. Being an ecologist, I know a good niche when I see one. Being a geologist, I can tell you a story in stone. Being a beachologist I scour the sands to remove the sea-spat plastics of a vengeful ocean and create objects of redemptive beauty. I fuse them to write a new story for our blue planet, our generation and for our ancestors to come. Buy one and save a whale, possibly. For art investors I’m starting out with introductory offer prices in recognition that my work is unknown but worth a punt as I develop the brand. I have a pipeline pumped up with new ideas. For interior designers I am ready to fill your client niches with surprise and delight at a profitable bargain price. For collectors, if you like it, get some in because each piece is irreplaceably unique and when it’s gone it is gone; but you also get a piece of me, a constantly renewable friend for life. Biog I am: a Fellow of the Landscape Institute; Fellow of the Salzburg Global Seminar; lapsed Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts; Trustee of the Centre for Sustainable Healrhcare; Elected member of the Council of the National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty; co-opted member of the Council of the Canal and River Trust; advisor to the Land Trust; associate of the Quality of Life Foundation; and, a former Commodore of Henley Sailing Club. Winner of the Henry Ford European Conservation Award for Heritage; winner of the Guardian-Digital prize for charities; winner of the UnLtd Award for Social Entrepreneurs. The author of ‘The Secret Thames’; ‘Apples, Berkshire, Cider’; ‘Eat Wild’; ‘Bizarre Berkshire’; ‘Reading, the place of the people of the Red One’; and, ‘Whispers of Better Things’. I have: a lovely wife; two wonderful children; one new granddaughter; created the Institute of Beachology; cycled the route of the longest straight line in Britain from the Isle of Wight to Cape Wrath on a folding bicycle to promote the cause of SLOW; a cider press; a coracle; and a small collection of dinosaur bones.
