“After many years of hard work and study I seem to be living the dream at the moment. From childhood I have always been fascinated by nature and this has become the main feature of my art and so I am never short of inspiration as work and hobbies have just become
one and the same.
Having been successful in breeding many rare birds I now get invited to give presentations as far a field as Africa and Australia and where I am then able to explore the wilds with the worlds experts. I visit so many amazing places I often have to pinch myself and so bursting with inspiration and reference I return home to paint my images. These images are frequently licensed by Zoo’s and Aquariums and so I then get to visit ‘behind the scene for hands on experience with even more fascinating species. Inspiration is all around me even as I work, at the end of my studio I have a glass wall enclosing my own piece of rainforest complete with waterfall and tropical plants in which poison dart frogs live and breed.
I really do work far too hard but if I was to retire today what would I do?,
exactly what I am doing now.”
