My name is Pete, the photo currently featured on this page shows an unsuccessful submission for the Summer Exhibition 2017, at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. A fine institution.

Brinkinfield is not my surname, but being developed as a pen name, chosen because it has meaning, relating to a faraway place where I spent around 7 years of my early childhood.

To be able to justify holding a pen name, I feel strongly, I need to get down to some writing. Pretty much my first attempts, are here.

You know when someone cries out “En-joy!” as if granting permission? I hate that expression.
