The River Greta series
I am currently working on a series of paintings based on and around the River Greta in County Durham, an area I have lived in over a number of years and have grown to love.

I was born in North Yorkshire, UK, and trained as a land agent, only during professional life to become interested in painting wildlife, this led to studying Scientific Illustration - featured in Images 11 the Best of British Illustration 1986.
After a few years in the advertising and scientific illustration world, I returned to land and heritage management - being involved in large scale award winning conservation and historic house schemes - when I began to concentrate 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.
