I am now back from the warm, blue skies and beautiful scenery of New Zealand; where I undertook my latest large commission. Whilst exploring the local wildlife that this inspiring country has to offer, I was also (some might say curiously) painting the rare and wonderful creatures of Mexico. This was for an exciting commission which gave me scope to focus on bright lush lands and all my favourite tropical, vibrant and colourful wildlife - not to mention a few new ones that I hadn't yet attempted!
I have returned to the UK armed with reference and inspirational images of my findings in the Southern Hemisphere to begin a new series of paintings, as well as some other new exciting projects that I have up my sleeve that I will be announcing later in the year.
For now however, it's back to the studio (my favourite place!)
