Jack Fenwick was born in Trinidad in the Caribbean, which he – possibly unwisely – decided to leave at the age of one to follow his parents, first to Nigeria and then back home to Britain.
He now lives in Bologna with his Sardinian wife Betta, in less luxury than he would like, and supports one of the rugby teams in the neighbouring city of Parma. He also supports the Italy national rugby team, having lived in Italy for more than half his life and because his wife is his country. And then he supports the British and Irish Lions as well, since – as George Orwell would have it – the red pillar boxes and suet puddings have entered into his soul. Last but not least, he supports the Barbarians because they ... read more

I kill houseplants. There. Now you know one of my greatest shames. I'm not boasting. I just figure that if you're reading this, you're looking for more than how wonderful life is as a writer. You get enough of that elsewhere. Ditto for political rants, how to lose thirty pounds in a week, and creating gorgeous crafts with nothing more than twine and soup cans. My goal is to connect with you, dear reader, even if you're not a writer, not a New Yorker, not a mother, not a female. We're human (unless one of us is a spambot), and what we have in common is flaws. So here are a few more of mine:

I wanted to make something different than a model in a standard setting. This led to composites where I'm cutting out the models and putting them into different scenes. It gives the picture a story, texture and history that make it much more fun to look at. The process takes a lot more time, but in the end the picture becomes art.
