In late September 2015 my first book was published - a coffee table book covering some of my favourite landscapes and wildlife images mainly on location in the UK. It was a full colour publication, including some of my paintings too which reflect the simple pleasures of life which people often appreciate all the more when they can no longer rely on good health and when life may be coming to an end. This was my situation before my life was saved by a kind organ donor back in summer 2014. To show my appreciation and give something back to the NHS services who cared for me so well (and continue to), I ensured that all proceeds from the sale of each book were shared between Birmingham Heartlands Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre and Queen Elizabeth Hospital Heart & Lung Transplant Centre. I negotiated funding for the publication of the book by three pharmaceutical companies through educational grants. The book tells my story with CF and up to lung transplant - see paintings [b][/ gallery on the gallery page.

21 February 2016 to 5 March 2016 (10am to 4pm, daily) - I am exhibiting my wildlife and landscape photography and watercolour paintings

Exhibition venue: Bear Steps Gallery, Alkmund Place (opposite Alkmund Church), central Shrewsbury, Shropshire SY1 1UH

This exhibition has now finished (5 March 2015) - A number of my paintings/photographs sold, but of course many still remain available if you'd like to purchase one.
I also sell greetings cards of my hare, barn owl, tawny owl and robin - a pack of 4 (one of each bird) costs £10.00 including postage & packing. Please do email if interested in purchasing my artwork or greetings cards.


April 2015 to Sept 2015 my landscape and wildlife photography has been on show at Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust NHS - Heartlands, Good Hope and Solihull hospitals, with 20% of proceeds from sales going directly to the adult cystic fibrosis centre to help fund specialist care equipment for people with cystic fibrosis. winter 2013 I had my first photographic exhibition at the Boathouse Restaurant, Ellesmere. In August/September 2014 I exhibited at the Bear Steps Gallery (Shrewsbury), followed by a month long retrospective of my photography and painting at the Gateway Art Centre (Shrewsbury) in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and to raise awareness of the importance and value of organ donation. I plan to support the West Midlands Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital & Queen Elisabeth Hospital Transplant Centre with any sales of my future work.

My most recent photography has captured local rural scenes in Shropshire. My paintings capture scenes from Snowdonia's peaks to the gentler, unspoilt Shropshire countryside.

I can offer A4 and A3 prints for sale. I use a well-respected, high quality, local fine art specialist printing business for all my prints.
