Through the mediums of pencil; ink; gouache; watercolour and acrylic, i attempt to capture and depict the observations and encounters that i experience with the natural world, especially birds.
Inspiration for subject matter often comes from birdwatching, walking Meg the border collie, or from my many years working in nature conservation management. There are no shortage of subjects to sketch or paint on nature reserves !
From an early age i have always had a passion for art and wildlife, and whilst keeping this interest throughout my life, i am now able to truly combine the two together.
Although i am self-taught, i do feel that art is a constant learning process to be explored, enjoyed and above all, to be shared with others.
