Galloping with a charcoal stick in hand....

Hi and welcome to my shop featuring many of my artworks! :) I am a full time artist specialising in wildlife, canine and equestrian subjects concentrating on movement and character with a dash of impressionism thrown in.

Most of my horse sketches are drawn from life or out of my head from memory and my Jack Russell dogs probably provide most (all...) of the inspiration for my terrier pieces! Please have a look at my sister shop dedicated to terriers and their dog friends here on Etsy - terrierzs.etsy.com where I have cards and prints galore.

I have been lucky enough to witness many beasts and landscapes throughout both Africa and America which has been and is the continous driving force for my wildlife subjects. I regularly exhibit with NEWA, and have been lucky enough to exhibit and sell with SWLA and the Society of Equestrian Artists. In 2012, two of my wildlife paintings got through to the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year Award, one came runner up and my painting 'The Last Winter' won it's category and then went on to win overall too! The prize was a wonderful 10 day safari back to Botswana. In 2013 I also won a category in this competition, came runner up in another and had two commended pieces also. I have also exhibited at the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London for the last five years.
In 2015 David Shepherd himself awarded my painting as his personal favourite.

Please grab a cuppa and feel free to browse through my prints and originals for sale, commissions are taken, just email me for specs. You can see the goings on in my studio at:

Returns and exchange details
I hope you will be completely satisfied with your purchase and that it arrives as it left, but if for any reason you are not then I would very much appreciate you getting in contact with me first so that we can sort any issues out :)

I will replace damaged or missing goods and refund where necessary. Please take photographs of any damage within 4 days of receiving it (including the package) and send them via Etsy messaging straight to me. This helps not only with making a claim, but helps me learn if my packaging needs in any way re-assessing! Message me as soon as possible if your item is late in arrival. Delivery dates are just estimates and vary greatly worldwide and at busy times during the year. Generally items do come through, so I ask that you wait Royal Mail's required 25 working days for overseas purchases until items are classed as lost, obviously you are entitled to a replacement or refund at your discretion after that period.

Returned damaged goods are at the buyers expense.
Please pay via Paypal or Credit Card within 3 days of making your purchase. Discount codes can be added at checkout. Combined shipping should be automatically done at checkout, but if you have either and they are not please contact me and I will refund any over payments.
All prints (um mounted/un matted and mounted/matted) are sent via Royal Mail first Class post UK and by normal Airmail (not tracked) for all overseas. It is the best way of keeping shipping costs down for you as my customer, but if you require tracking please contact me as this is done at extra cost.

Originals are sent via either recorded or special delivery for the UK and by track and trace only for all overseas unless the item is oversized where it will be sent via Parcelforce Global Value. All originals are sent fully insured. I pack everything carefully as I would expect to receive them myself, with instructions where necessary. I do use recycled packaging wherever possible, I love this planet and want to do my bit!

Please note some countries may charge additional customs costs for higher priced items on entry to their country, it is the buyers responsibility to cover this.

Arrival of your item under normal shipping will take 1- 3 working days UK, 10 - 15 working days for Europe, 15 - 25 working days for USA/Canada and 20 - 30 working days for Australia *at the moment due to the current Covid situation, please allow extra time for delivery* and time for this when ordering especially over the Christmas period. If you require a speedier service please just message me and I can get you a quote.
