About Me

My Background


I am never happier than when I am out sketching birds and nature , I have been lucky enough to meet and sketch with some of the best bird artists in UK and Europe 

My Medium


When field sketching I am mainly sketching in graphite pencil and applying watercolour washes , I have used pastel, acrylic and oils but the portability of watercolour suits my process

My Inspiration


the birds are my inspiration and other artists field work, my initial 'penny dropping' moment was when I saw Peter Scotts small field books and it really started from there having tuition from Peter parting ton,john Threllfall darren woodhead , greg poole and John busby amongst others
