Biography

I'm a freelance botanical and natural history illustrator drawing and painting plants, animals, composite landscapes, and diagrams for publishers, environemtal bodies, charities, and private individuals. I work in watercolor, pen & ink, and pencil. I've recently completed work on several field guides for the Field Studies Council (FSC) in the UK, and for "The Garden Forager" by Adele Nozedar and for "The Complete Naturalist" by Nick Baker. I am currently working on illustrations for a series of postage stamps, and on packaging illustrations for retail outlets. I exhibit from time to time, and also have a large data-base of my completed illustrations which are available for re-use by clients. Please see my web site link for examples of my work.
