Working primarily in acrylics, oils and pencil, my paintings and illustrations are characterised by a close attention to detail and realism. Exploring the British countryside on foot or horseback provides me with many of my ideas for paintings. I have a particular love for the rolling, windswept South Downs near to where I live and the rugged beauty of Dartmoor. However, the breathtaking wilderness and wildlife of Botswana has left a lasting impression and I have travelled there regularly since 2004. As a result I've become involved with several conservation organisations including the Botswana Predator Conservation Trust, Lion Aid and Arts for Conservation , raising funds and awareness for their campaigns. Other ventures have taken meto the Himalayas to trek to Everest Base Camp researching the habitat of the Snow Leopard.
I hope that my work can help further the efforts of conservation and make more people aware of the amazing creatures who share our planet. All creatures have a right to life and a future and I hope that by painting wildlife I will contribute in some small way to making people value and wish to protect the world’s last remaining wild places and wild creatures."
