Welcome to my website, a showcase for my artwork in a wide variety of media. Please browse the galleries to view my work in coloured pencil, watercolour, pen, graphite and cut paper.

For unique original works together with a selection of affordable high-quality prints and greetings cards, visit my online shop.

Commissions for pet portraits are most welcome. Why not treat yourself? Or give a thoughtful special present.

For many years I have specialised in animal subjects, both wildlife and pets, aiming to capture their individual personalities. Much of my work is in artists’ coloured pencil, which allows me to capture my subject on paper with directness and simplicity, and I am a member of the UK Coloured Pencil Society. I also love working in watercolour which is challenging and wonderful in equal parts.

Recently I took a break from full-time work to complete an inspirational year’s study of Art & Design at the University of Portsmouth. This allowed me to explore widely, to experiment with different subjects, styles and media. Now alongside my more traditional animal portraits I am developing a broader variety of subjects and approaches.

Two of my drawings were selected for the prestigious Society of Graphic Fine Art exhibition, DRAW 15, at the Menier Gallery in London. After many years as a member of the Marwell International Wildlife Art Society, exhibiting and selling at their world-renowned annual Summer Exhibition, I now exhibit at Southern Nature, and have been accepted into the St Barbe Open. Based in Hampshire, UK, I also exhibit regularly at a number of well-established local shows and take commissions for pet portraits, with many delighted customers.
