Graduating in design back in the early nineties I now combine my passion for creating art with my love for animals. I use my art to raise awareness & funds for animal conservation groups & charities across the globe. I am an invited Artist Partner to the Snow Leopard Trust & have worked  with Animals Asia, Wildlife SOS & Free The Bears to name just a few. 

My specialist area is pet portraiture & wildlife artwork but what sets me apart from many other animal artists is my desire to capture the character & not just the likeness. I work very closely with my clients so that I can make as close a connection as possible to my subject.

As you look through the sample images on my site you will also see that I put a lot of focus on the eyes…the windows to the soul.

I am currently a member of

  • TWASI (The Wildlife Art Society International) – 3rd in the Paeople’s Choice 2016
  • UKCPS (UK Coloured Pencil Society) – Awarded Reserve Best in Show 2016 Exhibition
  • AUSCPA (Australian Society of Coloured Pencil Artists) – Awarded the Woodland Award June 2016
  • WGAS (West Gloucestershire Art Society) – 2nd in the People’s Choice Aug 2016
  • SAA (Society for All Artists) – Awarded Best in category domestic Animal or Bird 2016 UKCPS Exhibition

I hope that you enjoy your visit to my site where you will see just a snapshot of some of my work to date. If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me direct.

Thank you…
