welcome ...

Welcome to my website where you'll find some of my art and activities both old and new. Before coming to art, I was a BBC correspondent and presenter for 20 years, working on news assignments around the world for TV and radio. There's plenty of evidence of this in my art. Although I sell some art, I prefer to make person-specific-art. Art that takes that relationship and thereby fuses the two parties in a joint endeavour. As a result of ill-health, after 8 years, I have sadly had to close my beloved studio The Flying Pig on Canterbury Road in Whitstable. This has also led to a greater focus on my writing. During the Covid Pandemic I have written a book about Miss Joan Rhodes a close personal friend and famous strong-woman whose amazing performances entertained pauper and princes alight from the 1940's to 70's. The book is entitled An Iron Girl in a Velvet Glove and is due for publication on 11th November 2021 by The History Press https://www.thehistorypress.co.uk/publication/an-iron-girl-in-a-velvet-glove/9780750999229/ If you want to know more please just follow me by clicking on one of the icons or contact me on info@trionaworks.com or . Welcome.


These works are in memory of my Dear Joan Rhodes

Joan could bend 6" nails, lift elephants and rip telephone 
directories (remember them?) in half. 

Joan performed with Marlene Dietrich and in private for the 
Royal Family amongst others ... 

RIP Dear Joan
