Some time early in the new millennium I decided to stop painting.  Not being well had something to do with it.  I first took up photomontage, war images with added colour collage.  This was the beginning what I called my Men at Work series.  I’ve been at the Men at Work series ever since, but dropped the photomontage in favour of pen and ink with paper collage based on Internet images of men working on pipelines (olive oil production produced one show).  And since 2016 the Men at Work on pipelines continued but mostly in watercolour.  Beside this work, I had done countless of drawings at Princess Margaret Hospital, and have recently taken up en plein air watercolour.     .  

The Archive of the website covers work before 2000: my acrylic paintings drawings, and sculpture in wood.  The Archive includes work done by the three-member JAC collective (1980s), as well as work by the two-man united artists (late 1980s).  It also includes Clarence Barne’s guestbook at Casey House 1995.
