Owls are my favourite subject to paint. Here on the Yorkshire Wolds we get barn owls, tawny owls, short eared owls and little owls.

I have owl boxes in my garden and so far a family of barn owls and tawny owls have raised their young here for years.

Many of my paintings are studies of these families. Read their stories below:

In the valley below my gallery three tawny owl chicks make their way through a line of sycamore trees, flitting from branch to branch. They are heading towards my garden bird table, where the adult tawny owls tear up portions of food to feed to them one by one.

My garden pond is now a tawny […]

The female tawny owl is now incubating three eggs. She sits on these eggs alone for 30 days until hatching begins. This year she laid two weeks later than usual and for a while I was worried she wasn’t going to lay any eggs at all. Owls are unlike other birds in that they begin to incubate as soon as the first egg is laid. This means that the chicks hatch at different intervals and […]

The female barn owl is now laying. She is supported by the male who brings regular meals into the box.
