I’m a British wildlife artist based in Thixendale, North Yorkshire, UK. I build habitats to encourage wildlife into my garden and use nest cams to study their behaviour. These studies inform my paintings. I share the best of my video research on this channel for free. If you would like to support my work please consider a small donation here: />
Or of course you may like to purchase my artwork which you will find on my website: Many of the paintings are portraits of the creatures you watch here!
