 'The Highlands is an amazing place to live and I am often stunned by the beauty of my surroundings. The wildlife here is always an inspiration! I have a passion for animals in all their forms and I am always striving to capture the unique spirit of my subjects in my work. I have been involved in wildlife conservation for many years and believe we all have a responsibility to protect and preserve the natural world around us. 


Whether you want to commission a portrait of your pet, a painting or drawing of a favourite wildlife subject, or you are looking for an illustrator for a publishing or promotional project I  may be able to help. Please take a look at some of my work on the website and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any queries or want to discuss a project or commission. If you are looking for an ecological consultant to carry out mammal survey work please go to Ecological Surveys for more information'.
