About

I am a fine-art acrylic painter based in Bristol. Living and working in an urban environment has shaped and influenced my practice. My main focus is the ongoing competition for space between an ever-expanding human population and their animal neighbours, an evolving intricate jigsaw. I’m fascinated by the meeting point between these two worlds, examining the cross connections.


My paintings are highly detailed, presented on simple or minimal backgrounds and strive to capture a sense of quiet beauty, allowing the viewer time to pause and reconnect with nature. I work on wood panels, created by myself and my father. The panel shapes themselves are influenced by the shapes, architecture and negative spaces of the man-made landscape and are used to create a stage my creatures can interact with.


My work has been featured in Art of England, the BBC Wildlife Magazine, Artists and Illustrators and the RA Magazine. I have exhibited in London, Glasgow, Dublin, Brussels, New York, Toronto, Singapore and Hong Kong. In 2009 I won the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year- British Mammals and in 2016 and 2019 was shortlisted for the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year.
