"Like most people I have a love of the natural world and birds, in particular, are my favourites.
The excitement of seeing a creature in the wild, photographing it and using that image as a basis for a painting, gives me a never ending supply of inspiration to continue my craft.
I would like to convey to you, the viewer, a little of my happiness when observing these amazing creatures. On a more serious note, I paint to highlight the value and beauty of our feathered friends and the need to conserve their habitat, the nest hollows in old trees and food resources.
"It would be an empty world without the songs of birds."
