“I spent my early life in Southern Africa, where an interest in birds was ignited during a spell in Botswana. The birdlife here was abundant and stunningly colourful, and I possibly didn't appreciate what a privilege it was to be able to sit in the garden and paint a kingfisher from life! 

I now live in a small village in the Republic of Ireland, where I have close access to rural fields and hedgerows, woodlands, beaches and a garden rich in trees and therefore birds. A small flock of bullfinches satisfies a craving for colour, for which I must forgive them their annual stripping of every last bud off the blossoming trees in February….”
