I live in the Northern Highlands of Scotland with my young family, although I grew up in Somerset visiting and loving Avebury, Glastonbury, Stonehenge, Stanton Drew, the sites of West Penwith... Always facinated, always learning, always on the hunt :-). These days I am an artist and have found myself studying stones as a main branch of my work...

Adding links, as I often post related material on my blog and Facebook art group...
