kingfisher artwork

Author:

This painting of a kingfisher is the result of a secret study of these brilliant birds inside their dark underground nest. I built a bespoke nest chamber and installed hidden cameras inside so that I could watch what happens when these brightly-coloured birds disappear underground to bring up their young in the dark. Filming Kingfishers Underground And I discovered an extraordinary world under there. For a start, who knew that the chicks looked like aliens? […]

A New Climbing Frame Also Becomes a Playground for Wildlife Well before lockdown, when such things were possible, my wife Vick announced that she had found a bargain second-hand climbing framing for our daughters on Facebook. It was priced at £200 for a towered wooden structure with connecting walkways, swings, slides and a climbing wall. The wood alone would have cost more than that! And so, after a bit of arm twisting, we made several […]

barn owl painting

Inspired by Barn Owls in Flight | My Painting Story I’ve been captivated by barn owls ever since I found a nest in an old elm tree on the farm in North Yorkshire where I grew up. They are such beautiful birds. Watching them fly across the meadows in the evening light is one of the most stunning sights on the Yorkshire Wolds. Barn owls have such soft feathers they offer little resistance to the […]

Rehabilitating Stoats A Tiny Stoat Kit Named Whisper I am currently looking after a tiny stoat kit named Whisper. Whisper was found alone and apparently abandoned by a dog walker. She was handed to me to take care of because in recent years I’ve taken on the job of rehabilitating stoats and weasels for Mustelid Rescue UK. My job is to hand rear them until they are ready to be released into the wild.  Scroll […]

Rehabilitating Owls

Rehabilitating Eric| Finding a Foster Family This is the story of Eric, a baby tawny owl soon to be released into the wild. I plan to place Eric with a wild owl foster family in my garden. This method of rehabilitation is very successful since tawny owls are unable to tell the difference between their own chicks and an owlet placed among them. Owls fostered in the wild have a better chance of surviving.  Rehabilitating […]

Electric blue and accented in bright orange, kingfishers are undoubtedly Britain’s most striking birds. This art collection follows an intensive study of their behaviour, during which I filmed kingfisher chicks inside their underground nests.   Paintings Inspired by Kingfishers The sight of a kingfisher is often no more than a fleeting flash of blue as it darts along a riverbank and so in order to study this bird closely for this collection of detailed paintings, […]

Capturing the Glance of a Peregrine in Paint | My Painting Story This is the story of a new original acrylic painting inspired by watching peregrine falcons on live nest cameras at Salt End Chemical Park in Hull. Footage from this camera is streamed via wifi to my art studio more than 50 miles away and over the years I have watched the story unfold as this formidable peregrine pair raise three generations of chicks […]

My collection of penguin paintings are the result of an intrepid journey to the Antarctic. I spent five weeks navigating from the Falkland Islands to South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula on a Russian ice-breaker. We were battered by force 12 winds, 10 metre high waves and sub-zero temperatures, but, thankfully, not being the sort of person who suffers from seasickness, these extreme conditions made the trip all the more exciting. Antarctica is an incredible […]

Crackle: Standing Proud | A Portrait of a Stoat Below is a short video following the story of how a new painting featuring a stoat named Crackle came about. Crackle was born in my garden in 2019 and when she was just a young kit she starred in a TV documentary for BBC Natural World and for the US station PBS. The programme was all about stoats and the family of mammals they belong to; […]
