My work reflects my love of the natural world and an interest since childhood in the worlds of other creatures and their habitats.  I also enjoy ‘close-up’ and microcosm studies and the often overlooked or unseen worlds that surround us but we are very much part of.

I work in a variety of media but I find that print especially allows me to reflect the detail that I am often looking for.  I also like to bring humour to some of my pieces, especially when depicting animals and birds that I believe all have personalities and characters of their own.
