Birds have always been a great passion, nurtured from an early age by my grandparents who lived in North Yorkshire. My grandfather was a particularly strong influence. Being an amateur artist himself, he encouraged me to observe and draw birds on our regular trips together in the Yorkshire Dales.

Following a career of over 30 years as an Art Director in advertising in both Johannesburg and London, I now run my own advertising and design business based in Heathfield East Sussex where the family have lived for over 20 years.

I have recently returned to painting realistic watercolour studies of birds. Over the years my paintings have sold privatley in Australia, South Africa, USA, Europe and the UK.

The examples of work are some of my latest commissions.
