Biography

I am a British Artist and Illustrator. Liverpool born and living in a canal side cottage in West Yorkshire with my dog, Ellie and cat, Monty. The Yorkshire countryside does have a wealth of animal and bird life that is a constant inspiration for my work as well as the sparrows that live in the bush at the bottom of my garden. When I am not painting, you will find me; at the allotment; walking in the hills with the dog or in France. For the past 33 years, since training in Liverpool Art College, I have continued my art practice, as well as working professionally within the arts, in both publication and re-painting. Working in commercial areas such as gifts, jewellery, pottery & editorial and Licensed on products, Worldwide. In 2014 the Tour de France came through the village and I created several illustrations, this gave my work exposure which led me to work on illustrative pieces on my favourite subject, nature and birds. The past couple of years, I have run workshops for watercolour enthusiasts and beginners, from my own home. In Spring 2014, I was featured artist on BBC Countryfile. I regularly write articles for Leisure Painter Magazine. I work on larger scale projects for Patagonia, creating window illustrations. I primarily work in watercolour, ink pen and gouache with a dabble of pastel pencils on Saunders Waterford watercolour paper from St Cuthberts Mill. Each day, I post a 'Tweet of the day' on twitter - a different bird everyday.
