I am a poet, a painter, and a musician. I write limericks, illustrate them in bright colours, and paint them on canvas and as public murals. I write songs on piano, make animated music videos, and occasionally play live. I have produced two short films of my rhyming monologues. Follow my latest work on Instagram.

LONDON BOROUGH OF LIMERICKS
A poetic street art treasure hunt of 9 limerick murals painted in Walthamstow, East London. Commissioned by the Mayor's London Borough of Culture and Waltham Forest Council.
Over 600 people participated, with each household receiving a limited edition print.
An accompanying exhibition of studio paintings opened at 1B Window Gallery. The show sold out, and the work was described as "bright, bold... awesome" (Time Out), "truly amazing" (Secret London), and "full of humour and life wisdom" (Creative Boom).
THE MAN WHO STOOD STILL FOREVER
A rhyming monologue, written and animated by me, and voiced by Sam Rix. The film was described as "masterful storytelling from an accomplished artist" (The Canary) and "ingenious" (The London Economic). It was selected for The Shortest Nights Film Festival. You can watch it here.
