I am an artist who paints in both a realistic style and a more contemporary, colourful style. Although painting is my main genre, I also sculpt and have produced work in bronze, ceramic and bronze resin.
I am moved to share moments I have experienced with my viewer and I love, especially, to paint close-up portraits of the animals I have seen, to make you feel you can almost reach out and touch them. I have enjoyed time on safari, just watching and witnessing the behaviour of African wildlife, and have a special love of Wild Dogs and Big Cats. Through my art, I hope to help raise awareness of the trouble our wildlife now faces and to do what I can to help support those battling to save our wildlife.
Every painting I complete is of an animal that I have seen for myself, and each painting brings back a wonderful memory and, sometimes, a story about that animal. I hope to convey the beauty, grace and power of the animals I paint and sculpt and to impart a little of the awe I feel whenever I am close to them.
Most of my paintings are acrylic, though I do sometime use pastel or graphite too.
