Left without the use of my right arm/hand following a serious motor cycle accident in 2005 I have learnt to adapt to life with a brachial plexus injury. I have developed  a style of playing guitar with one hand, play a Red Kite mountain dulcimer and have taken up painting. Starting with  fairly realistic watercolours I have progressed to using pastels with charcoal in an abstract expressionistic style (I think!) With a great interest in, and fondness for wildlife I am a volunteer with the Lake District Osprey Project.

This blog is a cross between a diary and a rant vehicle, an unfocussed canvas for sketching wordplay and images. Let’s see what happens.

  1. Great to see your work. I love the Lakes and lived in Grange-over-Sands for a few years where we had a studio space. I always feel we were privileged indeed! I’m following.

  2. Hi Keith, I had seven breaks in my right leg and a collapsed lung from a motorcycle accident. I was hit broadside. My motorcycle flew seventeen feet before the skid marks started. My injuries could have been a lot worse. I admire your ability to adapt to the loss of your arm.
