Lazy artist...

One of many descriptions which fit me, I am a sometime artist with little self-control over distractions.


I draw animal studies in graphite and have undertaken many commissions for animal portraits.  More recently I have been exploring the use of white pencils on black paper, which gives a realistic yet slightly more sympathetic effect.


I am now also allowing acrylics to distract me further, resulting in most of my latest work being a little experimental... I am a committed vegan of over 20 years and always ensure that my materials - paints, inks, paper, glues etc - are free from the products of animal exploitation, and not tested upon animals.


My subjects are usually animals, occasionally flowers.


My inspiration is life.
