A little about me…
“I don’t know why I have this all encompassing desire to paint wildlife….to be a wildlife artist…. perhaps I will never know, but when I am painting, then nothing else exists.
I am right back at the scene where I first saw my subject.
Back with the lions of the dry savannah of Savuti and the elephants in the lush vegetation of the Okavango Delta”.
It’s almost as if time stands still as I relive my memories through painting.
Born in Wales, UK, my love of animals has been there for as long as I can remember, along with my desire to draw / paint and teach others, so looking back it now seems inevitable that I would become a Professional wildlife artist.
Although it took me many years of trial and error to reach the level I strived to attain
Viewing animals in their environment
I aim to paint wildlife as accurately as I can, so where possible I like to see the animals in their natural environment, and this has lead to some very exciting journeys and experiences as you can imagine.
It’s these exhilarating and very personal experiences that I believe help me so much in my portrayal of wildlife in it’s natural environment.
It’s the hidden things that you can truly only experience by being there in person.
Sharing my knowledge with others
I vividly remember struggling to paint wildlife when I started 15 –
So over the years I photographed almost everything I learnt and this became a massively informative resource, not just for myself, but also for others
