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? […]

As a wildlife artist, I spend my time watching and photographing animals in their natural habitat to gain a thorough understanding of their individual characters.

In this blog post, I hope to share my painting process for different artworks […]

I paint in a detailed, precise style using both acrylic and oils to reproduce each feather or whisker.

The results are detailed portraits of an animal I know well. Follow the links that accompany each painting to read their individual stories. If you would […]
