I love capturing the character of wildlife and other nature subjects and I find that pastels is the ideal medium for my work.  I live on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, but although UK based I like to portray wildlife from many parts of the world which gives scope for some exciting colours and unusual characteristics.

Whilst original artwork for some of the images may be available, through the production of high quality prints I can make my artwork available to many more people, at affordable prices.  My cards are sold in aid of Explorers Against Extinction, a charity which benefits wildlife welfare and nature conservation.   I will be including paintings of many species from the Red List of animals that are critically endangered.

I am a member of Drawn to the Valley, the Tavistock Group of Artists and the Association of Animal Artists.

I hope you enjoy my art.

I was thrilled to have been selected as Artist of the Month for December 2023 at the National Trust's Bull Pen Gallery at Cotehele in Cornwall.  Many of my paintings of local wildlife were exhibited during the month and several remain on show there.

            At the 2023 AGM of Drawn to the Valley I was elected to the role of Chair.  It's an honour to be representing this group of brilliant artists and makers from around the Tamar Valley in east Cornwall and west Devon.  We are currently planning our series of exhibitions for the coming year as well as a special event to mark 20 years since the group was founded.

  At the Tavistock Group of Artists Exhibition 2023 I was awarded 'Best New Exhibitor', which comes with a lovely trophy which I shall treasure for the year (and it could do with a bit of a polish).
