I was very kindly invited to be interviewed for a the 'Imagination Edition' of London's uber-cool creative publication, 'Fabric-a Magazine'. It ended up being a first-up, fourteen page feature exploring many aspects of me and my most recent work. I hope it gives some background as to who I am and what I'm all about. It was certainly a very humbling experience and I am am very grateful to Creative Director Andrea Horne, and Editor In Chief Edyta Michalska for the more than flattering opportunity to share my work and outlook.

work, they seem to pale in some way to me, as they should, if I’m improving all the time that is. I must confess though, I take a mild interest in reminding myself of what I was thinking about at the time and what had motivated me in the direction the piece took. My artwork on Instagram is almost like diary notes of my life, outside of work at least. Although to be fair, my day job, has given me more opportunity to do charity work than I have ever before. I have come to believe at times I can’t help myself; I can always help someone else. I have, and it has certainly helped me in many unexpected ways. I would highly recommend anyone to try it. If I’m honest, the work I’ve been most proud of has been for good causes, a job I did for an old school mate, creating simple architectural visuals that were seminal in winning lottery funding for a children’s community project. It was in one of the most deprived areas of Sunderland, in the Northeast of England. In the current climate, having even a small part in securing the funding to safeguard the project for the next three years was humbling. Were I to be maybe a little selfish in answering the question, my recent collaboration with Daniel Valverde and his team out in the US has brought me my most recent sense of pride, the very talented and generous photographer offered me the opportunity to work with ‘his photography’ in a piece he has as good as given me free reign to develop as I have seen fit. I mean, his graciousness and encouragement has been overwhelming. It required I worked every spare moment I had as is usual at the moment, but I am really pleased with the result! I can’t wait to see the life they will have, we shall see! Your Instagram names are Maestronome and Maestrology. What is the origin of these names? Well, a username is about as good as a definition for confounding me. I needed something while maybe wide reaching to the point of ambiguous, in other ways was planted in another. Of course Maestro, is a master of an art; a conductor of an orchestra for example. Early on in life, (as well as beginning posting things up on Instagram), I have done many things, and no doubt will do many more as it is in my nature. When asked on my art and design foundation what I am passionate about? What became clear was that I want to get better at things; or ‘master’ things if you will, though those things are often a byproduct. It isn’t about winning or ego for me like it appears is for so many these days, but about succeeding in creating or achieving what you wouldn’t dare think possible, and taking the people along side you with you wherever possible. Meastrology is just a quick-reference stream of what I have posted more exhaustively (certainly in the early days) on my ‘Maestron-o-me’ (correct pronunciation derived originally from ‘astronomy, maestro and me’) stream. In some ways it is a creative exploration, beyond a more specific brief, finding a new job, being paid, having fun, finding an escape or a new path. It was always likely in my mind of consolidating my past ideas, in the form of a new one I love and have 15
