    I have always enjoyed history and travelling.

    My other main hobby is philately, I've collected stamps and postal history since I was a kid. I also have a small coin collection, including Roman coins.

    However my two fun hobbies are reading about Roman history, especially the frontiers of Britannia and Germania (the history part) and collecting Native American Folk and tourist ware (the travelling part). Here are two photos showing some of my collections of ancient and Native American things I've picked up over the years. The Kachina figure is a Hopi 'Reed Kachina' I bought in Arizona. The red pots are Navajo pieces, the old geometric pot is from New Mexico and is possibly early / mid 20th century. I have a few arrow points as well. The picture in the frame is a Navajo 'sand painting'.

    I also used to be a 'rockhound', still occasionally collect fossils and rocks. Oh yes, I also enjoy star gazing with my old 1978 Astroscan 2001 4' telescope. All very Victorian & Edwardian interests, it seems.

    The first and third ones are very Lucas-esque. They could have come out of a selection of Star Wars concept art.

    Me too... Simple yet elegant.

    Got round to taking some photos of my artwork - most of it's too big to fit on the ol' flat bed scanner... Here's just a few examples of the sort of stuff I do:
