About me

Thanks for viewing my work. Well in my spare time I am a wildlife artist and photographer . At least that is what I do in my spare time although I also play badly the Banjo and guitar.
I used to work as a Offshore Diver but had to give that up through an accident. This gave me time to concentrate on my wildlife sketches. I then purchased an entry level camera to provide reference photographs for my drawings. However I found I was spending more time photographing wildlife than drawing it and I became hooked on photography. During this time an ex girlfriend suggested I should try art nude photography and I was rather reluctant at first. But after doing some portraits for her friends portfolios I realised that artistic nude is an art form in itself and I find it a fascinating subject and am still very much at the learning stage.
If I had a mission as such it is to try to create beauty (try being the operative word ha ha) into what is becoming an angrier world by the day.
I used to be involved in Skydiving and Microlite flying when I was younger and still kid myself up I will get back into these sports.
My one regret in life is I did not get into drawing, art, photography and music much earlier in my life. Ah well there is still time

    Nice to have someone from the drawing community here. Good luck with the tiger. It's a challenge to draw fur.

    Best regards

    HI Dave,
    Thanks for your kind words to this photograph from the Dolomites. Currently, I have had to put my interest and hobby in the FC on hold. Other commitments have taken over. Hope you are doing well and enjoying summer.
