Until a few years ago, I saw myself as an old-school modernist 


But I have since found other excitements 

To avoid confusion, I have reinvented, as the author of the earlier works, my childhood imaginary friend, Bramble Richard. He's on Instagram as @bramble_richard 

Prompted by an intriguing challenge from another artist, Jane Fairhurst, I recently made a film in which I imagined Bramble getting some of his work into Castlefield Gallery.
