Moving to the East Midlands after leaving college I worked within the advertising and display industry for sixteen years. In 1986 I became a freelance designer/illustrator and artist.
Having painted many different subjects as a naturalist and ornithologist (twitcher), in 1990 I decided to dedicate all my efforts to painting, what i loved most wildlife and the countryside.
I have exhibited throughout the UK and overseas. My paintings of British wildlife especially Game Birds and Wildfowl are in many private collections and the majority of my work is commissioned. I have to date had four very successful one-man shows and my work has been exhibited/sold in the very prestigious Mall Galleries and Alex Llewellyn Galleries London, and in Kenya, Europe, and Australia.
One of my works was selected for the final of the “NOT THE TURNER PRIZE 2003.
My work is permanantly of exhibit at my studio;
