Welcome to my website.  I am a professional artist living and working in the pastoral uplands of Devon, close to the Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks - the Country of the Two Rivers made famous by Henry Williamson in his book "Tarka the Otter".   I specialise in animals, including the livestock and wildlife of the region.    

A selection of my original paintings is available through a number of leading galleries in the UK including the Steam Gallery at Beer, Devon,  the Salar Gallery at Hatherlleigh and at the 2014 NEWA exhibition where one of my paintings is still available to purchase.  

I am delighted to announce that one of my pieces "On The Catmint" has been accepted for Art4Macmillan, a prestigious art auction which will be held at the offices of Michelmores Solicitors at Woodwater House, Pynes Hill, Exeter in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support on 17th October.  It is hoped that the event will raise in excess of £10,000 in this its first year and become a flagship event for the charity.

 

 

The event will start with drinks and canapes being served during the viewing period from 6 pm.  At  7.30 pm fifty lots will be auctioned by Daniel Goddard of Bearnes, Hampton and Littlewood auctioneers.  My piece, which is lot number 41, is pastel painting of our Millie enjoying some downtime.  

 The full auction calogue is now available to view or download via Michelmore's website.  Bids will be accepted by email prior to the auction.  If you would like to attend on the evening, or to find out more about the event, please contact Saskya Liney at events@michelmores.com.

 

 

I have a selection of open and limited edition prints for sale, details of which can be found on my Prints page.  I also have a number of limited edition prints available through Buckingham Fine Art Publishers.

Time permitting I am able to undertake commissions in oil and pastel - please refer to my Commissions page for details.

 

 

  

 

  I run a (very) limited number of animal painting courses from my home studio near Torrington, where I also offer private tuition by arrangement.  A consultancy service by email is also available, along with a range of e-workshops.  You will find further details on my Tuition and E-mail Tuition pages.
