Writing

Writing

Writing forms a key part of my work, alongside my visual art.

I enjoy writing critical essays as well as fiction, and have worked to combine these (with strange, although undeniably interesting results). Some of my art writing and essays are published as blog posts, with some to be released as books in the future.

I’m also the publisher of a discrete blog concerned with money and finance. Besides this I run other websites of my own, and serve as an editor and contributor for several other sites… yes, I’m busy.
