wildlife artist & illustrator landscape architect garden designer

Illustration

My illustration work includes line drawings, landscape & architectural perspectives, and digital mapping along with the colour natural history work seen on other pages.  Although I enjoy linework I have not included many examples as screen resolution does not give much indication of what they are really like.  Please contact me if you would like to see examples (or see the Travellers Nature Guides series from Oxford University Press).

I was pleased to help Cambridge-based author Martin Walters with a couple of recent volumes in the Aura series on gardening topics, now available at a garden centre near you.  Gardens for Birds and Gardens for Wildlife will hopefully spread the word to a new audience - at just £2.99 a copy, who can resist?


In addition to the basic images of feeders and assorted nestboxes I contributed a few garden designs to show that a  wildlife garden does not necessarily have to look like a bramble-filled wilderness (like my own).
