So now its the end of my fine art degree studies. I am planning a new series of paintings looking at how wildlife interacts, both positively and negatively,  in our modern urban environments. So be prepared for some unusual and unique subjects in  my  paintings. I already have some ideas to do with mobile masts, and rooftops. Looking forward to getting started it is my intention to keep a regular blog going on my progress.

Started first of series includes looking at how wildlife pigeons and plants, buddleja reclaiming building. Will post soon
