About

hedgebottom

 

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.

Prints are handled by Thorngate Gallery and I often exhibit along with Jane Young and Geoff Hewitt. You may subscribe to my exhibition calendar, as and when they arise.
