I am an artist, photographer and sculptor. I was born in Surrey, England in 1964 and I currently am based in Cardiff, Wales (UK) with my wife Karen. I've always enjoyed painting, drawing, sculpture and then photography and I've always enjoyed being out in the countryside whether this means studying nature, going for a walk or going abroad.
After school in Weybridge (Surrey) I completed a Diploma in Art & Design at Epsom College and then a BA (hons) specialising in Painting at West Surrey College (Farnham) . I re-located to the lovely landscape of Wales in 2002, making sure I was near good landscape, good cinemas and a Championship Golf Course (Celtic Manor)!
My interests include landscape photography (specialising in panoramas and the Brecon Beacons National Park in South Wales), nature photography (specialising in British and European butterflies) and also golf photography. I sculpted the Ivor Allchurch monument at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea which was unveiled in 2005.
|Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...|
My problem is that I have too many images and too many possibilities for books in my head! My book on the Brecon Beacons is finally done - this is the book I have been waiting for a long time to put together, so I'm very proud of this one.
My next planned books are on South Africa (I am going there in Spring 2012 for the first time) and Bulgaria (a return trip planned for summer), with a possible further book on the best of my British Butterfly photographs.
|Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...|
|Do they? I'm not sure about that. The web is a pretty full place as it is! However, I would like people to see my photography. The natural world is a fantastic place, so hopefully that gets conveyed by my work. People should be encouraged to get out and explore, and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us! Blurb is a tremendously easy site to use, with standards of colour printing that couldn't be bettered, and very fast service.|
|This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)|
|Well, if you don't read it at least have a look. Maybe it'll tempt you to go somewhere new, or even appreciate what's going on in your garden! Even better buy a copy of my lastest book!|
