Dark Chanting Goshawk

A new painting in ikon form of a raptor from sub-Saharan Africa. This remarkable bird has been trapped, not in mist nets or traps, but in pigments and gesso by the artist.


Warbler and Pyx

Every bird is essentially an elaborate container of life, like us however there is perhaps a more subtle dimension out of the reach of science. Some species in particular have a quality of voice, behaviour or plumage particularly suggestive of this, and a painting of the Subalpine Warbler seeks to illustrate the case.


Picus viridis

The Green Woodpecker is a ground-feeding bird with a distinctive call and dramatic plumage. This simple watercolour depicts a female bird in winter and seeks to express something of its characteristically alert ground posture and rather unnerving glare.


La Grive

Where sense of place becomes spirit of place is a fascinating area of exploration. On the Isle of Iona in summer 2018 I became more convinced that birds have an innate understanding of this subtle transgression of boundaries. La Grive is a large and multi-faceted installation that seeks to interpret and share my experience.
