Hello and welcome to my new blog. It was freezing by the River Tyne in Hexham today in a stiff and bitter east wind.
I'm pretty snug in my wonderful Liskamm Duvet jacket, given to me by Berghaus in support of my planned drawing trip to Everest North Base Camp. Still not been able to get permits - but ideal conditions to try it out today. I'm sure the wind chill factor won't be much worse on the Tibet plateau!
Hope you'll get some insight into my life as an artist. In the meantime you can follow the link for my new book about my trip to the Annapurna Sanctuary in Nepal. It will give you a flavour of the work I do in the high mountains.
