I currently work off commissions making original paintings, but will be making a shop on my website soon. Please contact me for any enquiries. I send a Paypal invoice before commencing commissions, if you have a larger size in mind, I will discuss this with you.


This year I have started painting unique illustrations of Elephant's in a bid to raise awareness for their endangerment. I have started with the African elephant as a starting point, looking at the Ivory trade and its devastating affect on the species's declining population.

Each painting is a unique one off, so each painting will vary and will not be a replica of what you see as is the nature of it being hand drawn and hand painted. I am currently in the process of researching the best possible way to produce Fine Art Giclee prints because of the unique colour variations are hard to match. I send these un-mounted with a thick mount board in a protective cellophane bag in a secure corrugated envelope. I send via Royal mail special delivery guaranteed 1pm or at least signed for delivery (uk) because of the value of the item in case of loss or damage. For international postage please contact me.
