Welcome to my wonderful new website! We talked to several website designers before deciding to go with James Kelly (www.kellystudio.co.uk), who has proved to be an excellent choice, and good to work with. James is one of those multi talented guys, having studied Media, TV Production and Business Studies at Manchester University, and is also a professional musician and songwriter. I just love talented people and James certainly impressed me.
My last major show, at the Saatchi in London, as was my exhibition at Gallery on the Green in Chelsea the previous month. Some of my guests travelled from the USA, Canada and Switzerland just for my exhibitions. I was so delighted to see them.
For many years now I have been working on my autobiography, and my thanks go to professional author Catherine Mason (www.catherinemason.co.uk) who edited my story. Under the shading palms in sunny Barbados we went through page after page, 50,000 words in all. The added delight was ‘Pippin’, Catherine’s cute little dog and constant companion, who strutted his stuff around Brocklands like he owned the place. He’s a Maltese and Chi cross. He was so cute!
I was flattered that several publishers expressed interest in my autobiography. It is now with publishers I B Tauris, who estimate publication will not be before summer 2012. So apologies to the hundreds of people who have asked for a subscription copy, but it will be a substantial volume, and worth the wait. The subscription edition will be leather bound and contain a list of subscribers.
