Born in North Yorkshire and brought up in Derbyshire, I trained initially as a land agent, only during professional life to become interested in painting the natural world. 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 freelance illustration, 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 went on to gain my first MSc in Natural Resource Management, and another MSc in Geographical Information Systems, subsequently being elected a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. I now paint mainly using Golden acrylics, the subject matter being the natural world and the moments I see within it.
