About the artwork

This is a small watercolor and ink work that is part of a series of butterflies rare as well as commonplace, found in the British Isles. I have adored and been fascinated with these beautiful and ethereal insects as a child and their magic never fades. This small, fast-flying butterfly is now restricted to damp grassy habitats in western Scotland. The Chequered Skipper died out from England in 1976 and re-establishment trials have taken place since 1990. In Scotland, there are thought to be about ten core areas and there have been no obvious recent changes in range. These butterflies are flitting amongst Purple Moor-grass and False Brome, both kinds of grass vital as their food source. Painted using Winsor &nnewton, and Schmincke Watercolour Paints. Fabriano 185lb watercolour paper Painting size; 4.75'' x 6.75'', Total size with white mount and black frame; 9.50'' x 13'' Certificate of Authenticity signed by myself accompanies each original. Carefully packaged and dispatched promptly Free delivery in the UK

Apart from an Art 'A' level, I am self-taught. The pleasure I gain and the passion I feel for my work hopefully comes across in the varied subject matter and vibrant colours you can find in my paintings Growing up in a small village in Cambridgeshire I spent long days walking and cycling out in the fields and lanes, always entranced by the fine detail of plants and insects as well as the distant horizons Emigrating to Seychelles in 1983 I began a career in Art as the post I had been promised did not in fact exist! I had my first one-man expo of botanical work at Alliance Francais in 1985 followed by another in 1991. I participated in many other expos on the island and had an open studio on Mahe.
