Artist statement

My work is inspired by the beauty and diversity of nature. I work in watercolour, acrylic, oils and pen and ink to create realistic and detailed painting of birds, botanical subjects, landscapes and seascapes. I hope my work will encourage a greater respect for our natural environment.
