"Since I can remember I have always turned to art as a way to release my creative energy. I specialise in animal portraiture wild and domestic, but now and again I do enjoy the complexity of still life which challenge light and texture.
I paint from photographs taken by myself as I like to meet the animals to gage their personality and transfer this energy onto the canvas. My intention is to capture movement and spirit in my subjects hoping the final result is a mixture of soul, beauty and individuality.
I can often be found roaming the wilderness in search of my next colourful subject.
Based in Harrogate, I work in oils favouring large scale projects.“
