I have been involved in many things including electronics engineering, supervising at a youth-club, making dragons, carving knots, working with people with special needs, learning difficulties and mental health difficulties, 3D modelling, texturing and animation.

Here is a model I made in 'Fimo' of the Lambton Worm, from a legend said to have taken place in County Durham.

I turned this bowl from cherry wood and carved the Celtic knot into the rim.

I made this casserole dish and decorated it with cast copies of the unity-symbol-inspired Celtic knot that came into my mind ...Now also on a mug modelled in Blender 3D:

My love of interactive computer animation was revived a few years ago; firstly by the need for educational interactive games for adults with learning difficulties. So I learned Flash animation and made a few games and planned bigger projects... which I may continue with one day...

Up until recently I ran groups at a day-centre for vulnerable adults. Subjects have included music, computing, astronomy, photography, audio and video recording and production for stop-frame animation.

I'm currently working on 3d projects using Blender. Our ever-expanding 3D sci-fi project "Rockfall" has grown huge and will take a while to complete. See more at 'Rockfall'

I plan to return to our fishy project called 'A Fish's Tale'

Here's a link to our project "Galaxy Girl"'Galaxy Girl'

And a sheep I made a few years ago 'Sheep-Shifter'
