Spring has arrived with some beautiful sunny days which means that new life is beginning. As I am on lockdown due to the Covid-19 virus I am able to spend far longer in my garden than usual. I have become fascinated by all the different creatures from the smallest to the biggest who consider the garden their domain. From Looper caterpillars up to the ever present crows. The blue tit family are back in their nest box with the female sitting on about nine eggs and the male twit
Today is the day in which I appear on Countryfile on BBC1 at 7.00pm, and a couple of days ago I heard my first cuckoo of the Spring near a local nature reserve, such a beautiful sound. Cuckoos are very vocal and the male enjoys showing off his wonderful tail to the female to attract a mate, the female makes this bubbling sound in response to his attentions and they flutter from post to post. The Dawn Chorus is also in full voice and there is an Evening Chorus to go with it wh
After Halloween, Bonfire Night and all those celebrations we are now into the run up to Christmas judging by the shops but I am in the midst of getting work ready for my Open Studio Event at my studio, Westbury Arts Centre, Foxcovert Rd, Milton Keynes, MK5 6AA on November 18th and so it's brush, pen, pencils to paper to make a lively and lovely exhibition of my work together with my exclusive Christmas cards only on sale on this one day, it would be lovely to see some of you

1st August already, and am getting very excited about my exhibition at St Simon and St Jude's Church in Winterborne Monkton Dorset from 11-13th August, it's a beautiful old English church in a very pretty Dorset village completely accessible by the main road from Weymouth to Dorchester or vice versa. There will be cakes, teas and coffees available. The other great news is that www.explorersagainstextinction have accepted three of my pieces for their online auction which start
Another of my sketch for survival pieces - I have already sent a cuckoo drawing to Sketch for Survival which had to only take 26 minutes the time it takes for an African elephant to be poached and shot for it's tusks. But I wanted to do more so I have decided to complete as much as I can to contribute towards the conservation of endangered species in Africa. #WildlifeArtExhibition #sketchforsurvival #crownedcranesketch #explorersagainstextinction #africanwildlifesketches #afr
Why do I feel so passionate about drawing and painting the brown hare?
Well I am actually passionate about all British wildlife, and like to show this in all my art.
Many people who either collect my work or come in to my studio to talk to me about my work often ask 'why hares?' In fact it's a question which my family also often ask ..!
I don't recall seeing many brown hares when I was younger, my Dad often spoke about them, but my fascination with them began when I sta
I had the opportunity to write an article for the RSPB and explain a bit more about myself and my work. I hope you will enjoy.

Went out yesterday morning, despite the bad weather warnings, to look for the hares. The sun was shining so the promise of the brown hare was an enticing prospect which in turn led me to completely forget that British Summer Time had finished, so I was up and out much earlier than I thought, worth it though as I had a tremendous view of two hares soaking up the sunshine in their respective forms, with just a glint of sunlight in their eyes as they sat up to look around the fi
