I am a Wildlife Artist, specializing 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 which has given me the opportunity to study birds closely, and to visit private collections. My paintings are finely detailed in Watercolour/Gouache but I also work in Acrylic, Oil and Pencil. My Artwork has been used for book illustrations, calendars and donated to various charities for fundraising. I am a Member of the Dorset Coppice Group and enjoy being inspired for my Artwork by woodland surroundings. I exhibit my Artwork at various exhibitions throughout the year including Purbeck Arts Week and Dorset Art Weeks (every other year.) I am a Carpenter/Joiner by trade, serving a 5 year apprenticeship with a local Swanage Builder and am completely Self Taught regarding my Artwork. I am an Award Winning Artist and available for Commissions.
