Please note that unfortunately, I am not my Instagram account. I’m not as functional as I may appear, which is why it can take me a while to reply to comments, messages, emails etc.


There’s very little on this site at the moment, but it will eventually be home to my outsider-type art.


I am a 57-year-old art and literature-loving schizo (he/him): a severely mood disordered, psychotic former rough sleeper who lives in Earls Court Schizoland, London.

I have an impressive homelessness portfolio, including doorways, hostels, B&Bs, squats, abandoned factories, disused warehouses and road traffic islands (seriously).

I have one O Level (Geography, Grade C).

Obligatory idées fixes include Neasden, and outsider bijouterie (this painting captures the moment just before Mary Magdalene she said, “fuck you”, and picked her jewellery back up).

Please note I’m going to punch the next person on social media who calls me a hipster: apart from being 57, I have a proud industrial working-class heritage. One of my favourite accounts on Instagram is @blackcountrytype.
