From my studio window, I have a great view over the Yorkshire Wolds. I like to keep my French windows wide open for as long as the weather allows. At this time of year, I often find myself distracted from my easel by the autumn bird migration.  As huge flocks of birds fly overhead in formation, I can’t help but put my paintbrush down to admire them. See short eared owls during the autumn migration […]

The shrill call of a young cuckoo is a sound that I don’t hear that often but when I do I recognise it immediately. It has long been an ambition of mine to photograph the chick of this unusual parasitic bird, which flies all the way from Africa to lay its egg in another bird’s nest. I last had the chance 20 years ago. (Read about that experience by clicking here.) And then again during a […]

Woodpeckers usually nest either in dark woodland or high up in the trees where they are difficult to photograph. But a few years ago a friend called me to tell me about a woodpecker nest that was only 15ft up a  in an isolated tree where I could easily photograph it. All I needed was a hide up to be able to watch the nest without disturbing the woodpeckers. My friend helped me make a tower […]

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’ve endured the icy winds of Antarctica in order to photograph wildlife for my paintings. But nothing in that cold climate compares to my ordeal of watching courting hares on the Yorkshire Wolds in 2010. As the country came to grips with one of the iciest cold snaps in decades, I spent 10 days trudging through thigh deep snow, sometimes for eight hours a day. When it snows on the Wolds, it really snows, and […]

When I set off to Australia for a family holiday this summer, I was sure I would return with plenty of photographs of kangaroos and wallabies. But these creatures aren’t as easy to watch in the wild as you might think. It was just starting to get light when I saw my first wallaby hop across a track in front of me. I was on an early morning game drive through the Daintree National Park,  […]
