About Me

Currently living in Cannock where I enjoy the great countryside around me, its only 5 minutes to some lovely local countryside with a good variety of wildlife around...

Originally from Scotland so many of the images you will see here are taken there as I travel to the Highlands once or twice a year.  It is a spectacular place for wildlife so as an artist and photographer... its wonderful.  

Some of my early memories are around my love for wildlife and I remember collecting all sorts of wildlife images. I also remember spending all the hours I could when I came home from school, drawing and painting.  I went to live in the Philippines for about 8 years with an International Christian Chairty, I was living in the slums of Manila, as I sought to serve God in those slums. There was little time or opportunity to paint as I shared life with those on the very edge of it.  I have only started drawing and painting again in the past few years, at the same time I developed a love for wildlife photography...

... so I plan to make up for some lost time where my art is concerned and enjoy it to the full.

My prefered medium to work with are Polychromos pencils and I'm loving it...


I am a member of the Fellowship of Professional and Amateur Artists (FPAA) and the UK Coloured Pencil Society (UKCPS)


I hope you enjoy the site and the wildlife is seeks to express...
