As an artist fascinated by wildlife I work as often as the opportunities arise out in the wild where the rhythm and restlessness of wildlife and elemental landscapes - and sometimes people as well - interact and overlap creating powerful images and dramatic themes about the natural world and our relationship to it.

At work on the deck of Akademik Ioffe, Svalbard, July 2018.

The starting point has to be the field experience as pure observation is the raw material - perhaps a few small sketches, a larger more considered drawing, or an ambitious painting which one hopes distils something of the day’s experience. A work straight from the field can sometimes be framed and exhibited as it is.  What is left is taken back to the studio to be viewed in a new light and the snatched ideas worked through in different mediums - relief or intaglio printing, monoprinting or oil painting.


This site sets out to convey a feeling for some of those field experiences and to show a range of creative processes and some of the atmosphere of an artist’s studio.  The site also shows some of the outcomes - pieces of finished work, work in progress, or some of the exhibitions and other events where paintings and prints are shown.


Over a period 40 years and more working as an artist I have travelled widely in search of  subjects from the Arctic and Antarctica, to Africa, much of Europe, and the Americas.   However, these days I’m spending much more time in the studio working through the creative debris accumulated over years travelling to wild places.
