Hey there!

Welcome to my website, where document my adventures in life, the universe and everything. Mostly just stuff. At the moment lots of photographs as time to paint is rare. Hope you have a nice stay!

Some Design Principals

  • Complex problems require simple, clear and honest solutions.
  • Successful solutions will move people by satisfying their needs, giving meaning to their lives and raising their hopes and expectations.
  • Exceptional problems demand exceptional solutions that may be radical and even disruptive.
  • Effective solutions will be collaborative, inclusive and developed with the people who use them.
  • No solution should be developed or delivered in isolation but should instead recognise the social, physical and information systems it is part of.
  • Every solution needs to be a robust, responsible and designed with regard to its long-term impact the environment and society.
