I grew up in Warwickshire and spent much of my early life wandering in the woods and fields of the leafy county. I have always been a passionate lover of wildlife and have drawn and painted birds for as long as I can remember.
Watercolour, handled with a light touch, is my preferred medium for birds and animals as I feel it best captures their quick-silver vitality.
Painting 'live' at National Trust houses and gardens is now a regular part of my calendar, as is appearing at the National Poultry Show at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire each November. I very much enjoy meeting with the public and chatting about my work, and about art, birds and the wider natural world.
I have travelled widely in Europe, the USA and Africa and carry a sketchbook wherever I go. I recently launched the highly successful British Birds Collection of signed Limited Edition Prints which are selling in National Trust Shops all over the UK.
My paintings and prints are in collections in Britain, Europe, Canada, Australia and the USA.
For many years I have owned and run the Right Angle Gallery in Brackley, Northamptonshire, with my wife Val.
