About

I write poetry and make art for all lovers of science, cosmology and nature.

I am a poet and an artist, a qualified biologist with a keen interest in quantum physics and cosmology. I come from a writing family. XYZ was a writing pseudonym of my grandfather. I always liked it. So I decided to take it on, but with an emphasis on the Y, to represent the interrogative.

'30 Days' is an anthology of illustrated poems about science, cosmology and nature which appeals to dreamers, scientists and stargazers alike. The gold-foiled softcover book contains 30 illustrated poems and scientific notes. This is a limited edition print run of 1000. The poems are also available as individual Giclée prints in a variety sizes. Published in 2013, '30 Days' has sold in 28 countries worldwide, is now hanging permanently in the exhibition centre at the VLA in New Mexico, and has featured in exhibitions and events at The Exploratorium in San Francisco, and the ZKM | Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe.

Botanical Mandalas: Each mandala in this ongoing series, featuring British native species in habitat specific groupings, represents approximately 30 hours of painstaking and patient work. Having chosen my habitat and species, I then search for suitable high resolution photographs of the plants and insects I am looking for, which I then digitally excavate the ‘usable’ part of the image, working to pixel level, before carefully weaving and blending the images into a layered ‘bouquet’ which I can then mask, replicate, flip and rotate to create the final geometric pattern. It’s like doing an incredibly hard jigsaw where you have to make all the pieces first and you have no real idea of how it will look until you have slotted the final piece into place - and that is when all those many hours of hard work turn into the most wonderful ‘Tah-dah’ moment.

I'm working on two other new series, to be announced.
