We were on a life time trip to Uganda a few years ago and as part of the trip we did a trek up into the mountains to see the gorilla families being protected by a project in the Bwindi impenetrable national park area. After a long and arduous walk we found the family of gorillas chilling among the trees. My attention was caught by the little baby doing all it could to get its silver back daddy to play with him. I fell in love and managed to capture a photograph of him in a brief still moment, before he romped off once more.

Originally trained as a surface designer and printer at what was Cleveland College of Art and Design. It was during a role at my local art shop I discovered oil painting and have been learning how to use different techniques as I go. I love painting animal portraits from pets to wild animals and birds. My latest project during lockdown is based on skies and clouds to remind of me favourite walks that I hope one day to do again.
