"I create realistic art for a living..."

“…because I like the challenge of it. In trying to do a subject justice as it stands, it’s very fulfilling when I get it right.”

“I want to honour every tiny nuance in an iris, every flyaway hair, all the details that might make a subject come to life on paper. I might alter something in an artistic rendition, but such occasions are rare, and done with subtlety. The real and natural world is immensely interesting to me already, so I’m very happy leaving imagined alternatives to others.”

“Nature covers a gamut of size, colour, personality and beauty I find should be worthy of anyone’s attention.  It’s also constantly changing, largely for the worse, which is why 10% of all my wildlife sale profits go to selected wildlife charities.”
