Welcome to my website.
I am a scientist and artist, writer and illustrator of published children's books. Please see my book page for more information. My recent paper shows that the tanning pigment melanin is not always a completely effective screen against (UVA in) sunlight damage to skin cells. Please visit my Science page for more information about my scientific activities.
My books can be purchased from:

I exhibit my paintings around Cumbria. Here is a short film of our recent 'Haywood Exhibition' of the paintings of Robin and Rachel Haywood inspired by the landscapes of Swaledale and the Eden valley, together with prints, cards and books for sale by the Haywood family.
