    About the artwork

    This is a small watercolor and ink painting 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. I enjoy the fine detail of the insect and find a typical example of the plant each butterfly feeds on, which will also create a lively composition. The Scotch Argus is relatively rare and there is a certain poignancy in painting these beautiful creatures. Painting size, within mount aperture, 4.75 '' x 6.75'' Total size with white mount and black frame is 9.50 " x 13" All work is issued with a signed Certificate of Authenticity. Carefully wrapped for postage and dispatched promptly.

    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.
