My love of coastal wildlife began many years ago when I worked on an inshore fishing boat, first in the Bristol Channel and then the English Channel.
Wading birds are a favourite and often the best place from which to view them is the salt marsh. Over the years I have grown to value these marshlands and enjoy studying and sketching this unique habitat.
My art, which is self taught, is my visual diary. I like to depict wildlife within its natural habitat and try to capture the atmosphere of the moment. Water, light and movement constantly fascinate me and I find birds in flight very exciting.
To see my sketches please have a look at the posts on this blog but if you would like to see my paintings please visit my website www.ukwildlifeart.co.uk.Highlights from this blog are now on Facebook
