He was born in North Yorkshire in 1961. On leaving school he studied graphics and illustration for three years before going on to work as an archaeological illustrator.
In 1991, he and his wife Louise moved to the Highlands of Scotland where he had always found inspiration in the beauty of the Cairngorms. After ten years, the family moved back to Yorkshire to a country home where otters, badgers, foxes and a variety of wildlife are virtually on the doorstep.
He has exhibited among the world’s top wildlife artists in the USA since 1994.
