Ceoil is the Irish word for music, pronounced with a hard *k*, with gut wrenching emphasis allowed on the K for fellow lapsed catholics. Music obsessive, but here focused on a, not quite overriding, interest in art - music is my main concern, and how I relate to the world. I am fascinated by paintings of the 13th to 15th centuries, esp portraits, esp central and northern European. Also the 16th, 18th, 19th and early 20 c's.

Am happily married to the delightful and rather vampy Kafka Liz, another ex punk and fellow mediaevalist. We met here, while she was working on the Book of Kells FA, later we worked together on Las Meninas, bits and pieces by Wordsworth, a 19th-century German Romantic, and a bunch of other stuff. We are both live and let live ex Catholic atheists, nonetheless deeply interested in early medieval Christian iconography.
