About

This blog is a portfolio of written work and other stuff emerging from a small house in a small village in Cumbria, UK, or rather, a random collection of fairly unconnected items. I should probably have called it ‘Junkroom of immaterial things’…. As you have got as far as bothering to read this, thank you.

You can see more of my work on instagram @flisswatts, and there is now a related YouTube channel, called IdeasMeltLikeSnow.

(Note: I used to have a website at ‘www.flisswatts-artist.co.uk’ which I decided to close down as an unnecessary expense. The address has strangely been adopted by a clothing retailer which has nothing to do with me.)
