About "Young Lion"
This was one of those paintings in which I achieved what I set out to do. Yes, this is a portrait of a young lion resting on its mother (who is not seen) but the treatment was something special. In the painting process I used the oil paint like you would watercolour. Laying down a wash in the background and then painting calligraphically into it. This work was completed in less that two hours.

WHY DO I PAINT?
I am passionate about nature, animals, people. In fact I am passionate about life, about living. My art is a celebration of life. I hope it shows!!
A realist at heart, I strive for spontaneity in my work and paint with oils on mounted canvas or board in an impressionistic style. Whatever the subject, I enjoy using various paint textures, from a lean transparent ground to thick impasto paint in the highlight and focal areas. I have a graphic arts background and love painting African wildlife but am versatile enough to tackle any subject.
After receiving a Diploma in Graphic Design I started my working career in 1978. I have always worked on the creative side of various Advertising agencies including Bates Wells and McCann Erickson. Since 1990 I have run my own advertising agency.
FINE ART CAREER:
I have painted on and off all my working life. Only in the past five years have I been selling work commercially rather than giving everything away as gifts to friends, family and clients. I have a small but loyal following of collectors and have sold paintings internationally and locally to private individuals and companies.
