I grew up in Warwickshire and spent much of my early life wandering in the woods and fields of the leafy county. A passionate lover of wildlife, I have drawn and painted birds and wildlife 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. I also make linocuts.

Painting 'live' at National Trust houses and gardens is now a regular part of my calendar, as is appearing at the National Poultry Show 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 also paint cattle, sheep and pigs.

I travel widely in Europe, the USA, Asia and Africa and carry a sketchbook wherever I go. My prints sell 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.
