I am a writer, and an artist working in digital image, sound and text installation.
I work across and between artforms. I have been a professional artist since 1990 and my work also includes theatre, published prose and poetry and performance text, as well as more conventional moving image and sound work. (See also my work for pandamedia cornwall).
Community arts and socially engaged projects are long-standing parts of my practice.
You can find links to examples of my work through the menus above, including many things to watch and read. Have a good look round.

'Stairs': companion film to 'New Reed', with Mark Jenkin
“Paul Farmer’s ‘I Shake When He’s Gone from My Door’ is a marvellous piece of writing, lucid yet mysterious…. Fear, anger, despair are delicately pinched up at their corners and bound into the quiet, purposeful sentences…. Another reason for reading anthologies is to welcome exciting new talent when you see it. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s a joy." – Jenny Turner, Financial Times, reviewing England Calling, pub. Weidenfeld & Nicholson 2001.
