I am a Wildlife Artist, specialising in Birds of the World. Swanage born and bred. Always been interested in the countryside and painted from a very early age. Aviculture has been my hobby since the age of 8 and given me the opportunity to study birds closely and be able to visit private collections. My paintings are finely detailed in Watercolour/Gouache but I also work in Acrylic, Oils and Pencil. My artwork has been used for book illustrations, calendars and donated to various charities for fundraising. In 2018 I donated an framed original Watercolour painting in aid of the Swanage Bandstand Appeal.
I am a Member of the Dorset Coppice Group and again enjoy being inspired for my Artwork by woodland surroundings. It was a great honour for me to be introduced to Her Royal Highness, The Princess Anne when she officially opened the Head Quarters of the Coppice Group at Bonsley, near Blandford. She spent quite some time chatting to me about my Artwork.
I exhibit my work each year at: Purbeck Art Weeks, Dorset Art Weeks, The Wildlife Art Society International (Nature in Art, Gloucester) British Birdwatching Fair, Southern Art Exhibition etc.
