Here you can find examples of my work and information about where and when it can be viewed in the cyber and real world.
Having grown up in Africa at an early age I developed a deep and abiding passion for the natural world. I try in my paintings and drawings to capture what I "feel" about this wonderful place, beyond just how it looks. It has so many moods, not only the action-packed excitement, but the magic peaceful times, with magnificent creatures going about their daily lives in that vast and fascinating arena that is Africa. A constant challenge is to capture some of the essence of this awe inspiring vastness and beauty on a canvas or piece of paper. I very much regard animals as individuals and try to make my representations of them "portraits" rather than just studies of a species. Artistically my inspiration is varied, from the refined restraint of Japanese screen painting to the painterly works of John Singer Sargent. Light for me is the unifying factor that draws composition together and harmonizes color. I hope that my many years of ongoing study of the scientific side of natural history provide a very solid factual foundation on which to express my passion for the wonder of the natural world.
It is not just Africa that inspires me. I have lived nearly half of my life in North America so draw much inspiration from its beauty and wildlife, as I do from the many places I have been fortunate enough to visit on our wonderful planet. What an exciting adventure. If there sis one thing I hope that you get from looking at this work it is that all of this beauty is worth trying to preserve for future generations.
