Hares are often mistaken for rabbits. Hares behave and move in a totally different way. Witnessing the wildlife spectacle of boxing hares every Spring is something I really treasure. They are wonderful creatures and I love making them.
Another favourite animal of mine. They are so playful, intelligent and very talkative and I love trying to capture some of those characteristics.
Dogs have a language that allows them to communicate their emotional state and their intentions to others around them through sounds and signals but it is their body language that I find fascinating. Witnessing canine agility is perhaps one of the most thrilling things to see in our own dogs.
I feed a whole community of birds in my garden every day. From Wrens and Blue Tits to Woodpeckers and Pheasants, I am visited on a daily basis by these beautiful creatures. I am particularly struck by the beauty and intelligence of crows. They feed my soul.
Living on a farm and being surrounded by cows and bulls brings me real joy. They are so gentle, peaceful and serene. But it is the underlying power and strength of bulls that captivates me. No wonder they are so celebrated in so many cultures.
This is my studio. I love it.
