To get in touch with me you can phone, e-mail or write. I don't have any premises to trade from, but I do have a complete living history encampment (including forge) and a van to transport it in.

Employ me and soon I'll have a boat to transport it in too!

I will consider each opportunity on its own merits, so if you have an interesting idea please get in touch. I'd love to hear from you and it won't cost you anything. If I can't help I might know someone who can.

I value the role voluntary action plays in the community and therefore make sure that a proportion of my time is spent working for the benefit of those outside my family without concern for financial reward.

As a guide to what it is reasonable to pay an artist for their services, however, these figures may help.

first day £180

weekend £250 (depending on type of accommodation available)
