A slection of my paintings, grouped by the current theme I'm working on.
The River Greta series
Paintings based on and around the River Greta in County Durham. This is an area I have lived in over a number of years, have wandered over almost daily and grown to love.

Series paintings and their locations
Born in North Yorkshire, but being brought up in Derbyshire, I trained initially as a land agent, only during professional life to become interested in painting wildlife. This led to studying Scientific Illustration - graduate work featuring in Images 11 the Best of British Illustration 1986 - and employment in the scientific and advertising sectors.
After a few years of freelancing, I returned to land and heritage management - being involved in large scale award winning conservation and historic house schemes - whilst concentrating on painting natural subjects.
I also have an MSc in Natural Resource Management, an MSc in Geographical Information Systems and am proud to be a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.
