Located in the remote Yorkshire Wolds village of Thixendale it even tops giants such as the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield.

I am currently exhibiting a new collection of paintings of wildlife in winter and I thought I would share with you the photographic and video research that went into this new series. I am particularly interested in how animals behave when the temperatures drop and so whenever it snows I like to get out with my camera to see what I can find. This is a really magical time. Not only does the world turn […]

I have designed the garden at Fotherdale specifically to attract wildlife and many of my paintings are portraits of the wild creatures that now regularly visit it.  When my wife Victoria and I moved to Fotherdale, the garden had been leveled with a JCB digger and there were only two plants remaining – a red hot poker and a fushia. This was actually ideal because we had a blank canvas to work on. The first […]

Fidget my pet weasel

I’ve been watching a family of wild weasels in my garden for two years, monitoring their lives closely via surveillance cameras hidden in the shrubbery. It’s been fascinating following their story through the seasons, from the moment the adult pair mated, to the birth of the kits and on to watching the young on their first hunting lesson. I’ve learned some interesting things about these tiny mammals along the way. For instance how early the […]

Visitors to my gallery often like to get out and enjoy the stunning scenery whilst they are here. Sometimes they head out to see if they can see the wild owls, foxes, badgers and birds whose portraits hang on my gallery walls. Why not follow their lead and make the most of your visit by packing your walking boots when you come so that you can also enjoy the Yorkshire Wolds? Follow this link to […]

UPDATE: This post was written in January in support of an event to promote the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. If you have followed a link from my tree sparrows photograph of the week, the Birdwatch is no longer relevant, but do read on: the story of how I turned my garden into a wildlife haven is included in this piece. Visit my gallery in Thixendale later this month  to learn how you can become a […]
