About Me

I'm Mike Shepherd, a Geordie who re-located to West Yorkshire a few years ago to be with my partner.

I've dabbled with photography, gothic digital art, 3D design and 3D Printing, mould making and casting and playing with anything electronic and interesting.  Pen making has pulled all of these together and I'm having fun with it!  Family and friends are wondering how long it lasts until I move onto a new hobby.....
