I have been painting animals and birds and producing pet portraits for many years. I always work in acrylics, building up layers of colour then adding the detail with lots of fine brush work.
I mainly use my own photographs for inspiration and enjoy visiting places to photograph wildlife. I also work from clients photos to produce pet portraits - mainly dogs, horses and cats but sometimes more unusual requests such as an American badger, grey parrot, ducks and hens.
As I'm based in Suffolk most of the shows I exhibit in are local to the area.
In 2019 I was lucky enough to win the 'Favourite Painting' award at the Tostock Show with my barn owl painting 'Ghost' and 1st prize at the Tendring County Show's Art Exhibition with my 'Handsome Horses' painting.
