A Devon based artist that has been professionally painting for over three decades. Specialising in big game and birdlife from local British species to Outer Mongolian, David has collected first hand reference from them all and is often oversees sketching or photographing new subjects to paint.
"I am an Artist/Photographer based in beautiful Devon. I am also a licensed bird ringer & run a small bird rehabilitation centre. My life is immersed in wildlife oriented things & this
gives me the daily inspiration for my paintings & photographs.
I am also lucky enough to have travelled to some of the most beautiful places on the planet in search of my subjects. Africa being one place that is very special to me & I find inspiration on every visit to this beautiful continent ! Botswana is very dear to my heart & I co -guide safaris there most years.
Birds, however, are my overriding passion & I have been able to work in beautiful places like Mongolia & the Tibetan plateau on projects involving conservation of species like the Saker falcon.
In short I eat ,sleep, drink nature on a daily basis & I do hope this comes across in my work .
