My career began as a scientific illustrator, graduating from Hornsey School of Art in '82. I have produced artworks for the natural history, biological, veterinary and medical professions, most notably in association with the Rothschild Natural History Museum at Tring and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
Over the past few years I have focused on endangered animals in my work, an interest discovered and shared with my daughter, Lucy, who writes about the finer things experienced in the African bush as a Trails Guide. It is through her stories that I have acquired a close understanding of all things remarkable and wild, a sense of which I bring to my work, along with the anatomical understanding that will always be within my art.
Closer to home I can be found sketching the wild ponies on Exmoor.
I rarely part with my original work, it is personally too valuable to me; so, with this in mind, it is very special to me to be able to contribute a painting in oils, “Rothschild Giraffe” and add valued support to Explorers Against Extinction, a special and direct cause for wildlife conservation.
