Biography

I enjoy exploring galleries and painting. After a few years away from making art I allowed myself some time to get reacquainted with a love for acrylic painting. I decided to focus on birds, pets and wildlife portraits in an attempt to capture both their natural form and the disposition of the animal or bird. I aim to always have a painting on the go and I hope to improve my skills enough to be able to enter DWSF Wildlife Artist of the Year.

inspiration

I am an artist who loves combining art with nature. I take inspiration from everyday animals, birds as well as more rarely seen wildlife. I tend to work from photographs taken by my brother or from family snaps taken on walks or at the wildlife park. I think nature conservation is important and believe that painting can be a means to highlight the issues facing wildlife to a wider audience.

medium

I prefer to paint on canvas but I also use canvas board or paper. I tend to start with a loose coloured pencil sketch and will play around with this until I am happy with the composition. I then work with watered down acrylics to set a base colour. I then build up the textures of the fur or feathers using coloured layers which can take some time to get the desired effect.
