I’ve sketched and painted for much of my life and take most of my inspirational cues from nature and wildlife, as well as also having occasional interests in still-life and architectural subjects.
I’m largely self-taught and have successfully developed several styles and techniques, selected according to whatever inspirational mood, feeling and chosen media I choose when launching into each new work. Following a long career in engineering I now devote much of my time toward my art, as well as wildlife surveying (particularly bird-life). It is therefore no surprise that birds as well as the land and sea-scapes in which they live recur frequently in my work.
I first developed a love of Purbeck in the 1970s when I climbed and bird-watched on its Jurassic Coast, becoming so inspired by Dorset’s natural beauty as to make it my adopted home county ever since. However, I’ve also been fortunate enough to travel widely, worldwide, and this too is reflected in my artistic output.
My aim is to produce evocative and atmospheric images that convey to the viewer the inspiration that nature never fails to provide me with.
