I paint pictures, take photographs, make music and travel around, and sometimes write about those things here. This is all paid for by a day job of course, which I don’t tend to discuss here.

So, just for the record, “Aesthetic Enquiry” is a personal weblog written by me, James Davies, and published under a Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported license.

What’s written here doesn’t reflect where I work, who I go out with, who my friends are etc. 🙂 But you are free to comment and let me know what you think (though check out the cookies and data protection page before you do please).
