Welcome to my site.

This is where I showcase the various images I've created over the years pursuing my hobby of using maths to create patterns. Wherever possible I've tried to provide explanations of how the patterns are generated and in some cases I've provided source code that you can download and adapt.

The site also contains some photos from some of my holidays, artwork by my brother and the fruits of my brother's butterfly hunting around the United Kingdom and in the West Indies. He's one butterfly short of the full set.

Please Enjoy

October 2019: I've redone the affine transformation pages using javascript, making them interactive. You can find the new page here.

2019: I'm working on a page called "Sculpture Garden". Rather than have pages of images I created earlier linked by html if will present a sort of 3D environment that you can explore. It is work in progress and will probably remain that way for some time, but I do have a few galleries (like in the image below) and outside there is a garden with mazes and a few sculptures. Check back often as I will be adding more content..

October 2018: I've started a new Maze section replacing the old mazes I implemented using Java and Python with a more interactive section using Canvas controls and Javascript. The index is here. See the 3D walk-through of a maze based on octagons here.

March 2017: I've Reimplemented the five colour cellular automaton in Javascript using the HTML canvas. This replaces the earlier Java versions which no longer work. It can also be used to create large printable images, something the earlier version couldn't do.

June 2016: I've created an interactive version of the colouring-in pattern generator to replace the one that used to run on Google's AppSpot. You can find it here.
