This is the painting I'll be exhibiting at the 'Bird Art at 5o' exhibition in Norfolk- see below for more details
Bird Art at 50: October 24th to November 14th

The BIRDscapes Gallery, Glandford, Norfolk

A few weeks ago I was delighted to hear I had been invited to take part in a very special exhibition at the Birdscapes Gallery in Norfolk. 50 years ago this year, Robert Gillmor decided that bird art needed to be brought to a much wider audience, and as a result he organised the Exhibition by Contemporary Bird Painters, held in Reading in 1960.

To mark the 50th anniversary of this ground-breaking exhibition, Robert, along with gallery owners Steve & Liz Harris, have invited 50 artists currently working in the UK to each submit a piece of work to be included in the event. I will be featuring a painting of Bar-tailed Godwits, and will be amongst very well known and respected names in British bird art, including Robert Gillmor, Bruce Pearson, John Cox, Michael Warren, Keith Brockie, Chris Rose, Darren Woodhead and Ian Lewington.

New Publication

A little while ago I recieved an advance copy of 'Reptiles of South East Asia' (cover, see below), which has 12 of my snake plates within. Having never painted snakes before, I was really pleased with the way they have reproduced, and even have a couple of my artworks on the front cover (top left banded snake, and the King Cobra, a little further down).
