This wolf painting "Contentment" won a Talent Award for the Art Show International Competition. Timber wolves are one of my all time favourites to paint. Wolves live in packs and need this connection for hunting and raising young ones. At one time, wolves were killed for their fur and were often seen as pests who killed farm stock. However, due to conservation efforts the timber wolf populations have increased.I painted this wolf in a serene pose. I took the photo reference at the Schubenacadie Wildlife Park in Nova Scotia, Canada.

“Locked On” - the famous Wapiti Lake pack tracking their prey. 30x40 oil on stretched linen, complete and submitted for the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year competition. The Wolf pack, led by the alpha female, travel single-file through the deep snow to save energy. Wolves walking in a single-file line through deep snow is a classic example of how they are able to use weather conditions to their advantage while hunting much larger prey. The behavior of the Wolf pack is family-oriented and cooperative, and not a dominance hierarchy.

“Kissed by the Sun”, the second painting in my collection "Stop the War on Wildlife" is finished and available. For the thousands of captive-bred African lions, their life of suffering begins shortly after birth. Before becoming a trophy, lions are bred and raised on breeding farms where cubs are removed from their mothers and used as photo props for tourists, or raised by volunteers who mistakenly believe they are contributing to the conservation of lions in the wild. The cubs are frequently ill due to stress brought on by constant contact with humans, poor nutrition,...

Every day I come across articles about people deciding which animals should be included in the Endangered Species List and which ones shouldn’t. What gives us the right to decide? Every species, and every individual animal, is part of an ecosystem at a micro and macro level, and needs our protection and stewardship. Humans systematically wiped out wolves in North America, only to reintroduce them to Yellowstone National Park once we became more “educated”. But the slaughter of wolves continues outside of our fake protective boundaries.Why does anyone feel the need...

Elk are aslo called wapiti, a Native American word that means "light-colored deer". During the late summer breeding season the bugling of bull elk echoes through the mountains. These powerful animals strip the velvet off their new antlers using them in violent clashes that determine who gets to mate with whom. Males with the bigger antlers, typically older animals, usually win these battles.This painting is up for an auction to raise funds for Mount Evans Home Health Care and Hospice in Evergreen, CO.

I have lived and worked at the Larmer Tree Gardens for 31 extremely happy years and feel privileged to have known, and been able to spend time with the late Michael Pitt Rivers: owner of the Larmer Tree Gardens and Rushmore Estate. During the 90's, both Michael and his partner, Mr. William Gronow Davis, very kindly commissioned me to produce a number of artworks.In 2005, I opened my Studio doors to folk visiting the gardens and it was lovely meeting so many different people from all walks of life, and from all corners of the world.Sadly though, Covid has taken its toll and this summer I...

From October 19 to 20, I participated in the national synchronized survey of Spoon-billed Sandpiper. In Tiaozini, Dongtai City, Jiangsu Province, I witnessed 26 Spoon-billed Sandpiper myself in two days, two of which had flags. The team has witnessed hundreds of Spoon-billed Sanderpiper, and the specific number is still under statistics.

I just read about this project. Very Interesting.The Great Green Wall is one of the most inspirational and urgent movements of our times. This African-led initiative aims to grow an 8000km new world wonder across the entire width of the Continent to transform the lives of millions living on the frontline of climate change.   The UN Convention to Combat Desertification is a key partner in the initiative.  Welcome to our ‘Growing a World Wonder’ campaign website, in support of Africa’s Great Green Wall.
