The beauty of nature reflected in art is just another reminder of our need to protect it

I have always had a need to create and since I can’t play the guitar, I had to settle with drawing and painting. I started my art career creating pencil sketches on a commission basis for clients for a few years then switched to acrylics, and photography. Recently I’ve added watercolours and wood carving (birds) to my repertoire, with some success.
Whenever possible, I prefer to do my work via “plein air”. Working on-site provides so many details that a photograph can never reveal.
The majority of my work is in a realism style but that doesn’t mean something completely different won’t come off the easel once in a while. Numerous interests from landscapes, wildlife and anything mechanical ensure no shortage in subject matter to work from. Diversity, from the initial idea to the presentation of a piece, is the key to maintain creativity.
I admire the works of many different artists ranging from the Old Masters, right across the spectrum to a multitude of current artists. Inspiration can come from many different places.
When someone comments that my work has affected their mood, brought back a memory or triggered an emotive response; then I know I’ve done my job properly.
Commissions are accepted.
