An absolutely vast subject, and one that will keep me painting for many years to come. Birds and art seem to naturally go hand-in-hand. Our experiences of seeing birds are often so fleeting that we can't help but feel compelled to record what we have seen - or inspired to capture them in all their finely detailed plumage, something which we're often not lucky enough to see in detail first-hand. I admit to an affinity for British birds, but I can't help being drawn to depict the more exotic species from time to time.
