40th Anniversary Images

In 1977, I abandoned my three year Bachelor of Education degree to try painting for a living. I had no idea if I would succeed, but felt compelled to at least try. Forty years on and I’m still here. How fortunate am I.

I feel it appropriate to mark this anniversary with four new images of breeds that are probably the most representational of my career and have become synonymous with my work as an artist.

Labs, Springers and Collies are working breeds that have been so important to me. The Westie is a breed that I came to know and love through a most wonderful, sixteen year relationship with one in particular. A little lad named Berkley Bear

I have had the pleasure to paint many wonderful animals over the last four decades, all of which have given me tremendous fulfilment and I am humbled that my work has been as popular and successful as it has.

To those who have supported me and enjoyed my work, I thank you and hope you might continue to do so.

2017 has been a momentous year for me. Not only celebrating 40 years as an artist but also my 60th Birthday and the birth of our first Grandchild, Ewen James.

With my very best wishes
