About

hedgebottom

 

Initially training as a land agent, I became interested in art during professional life. 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 heritage and land management - winning a regional Visitor Attraction and two Laurent-Perrier conservation awards - whilst painting wildlife.
