Biography.


David believes he inherited his artistic skills from his Mother and Father, whom were both extremely talented.  David began his artistic career as a stained glass window artist, in his home town of Liverpool, England, where he had his first one man exhibition, in a city centre department store at the age of seventeen.  David attended Art College in Liverpool, where he became adept in oils, watercolours, pastels and graphite pencils.

In 1978 David emigrated to the U.S.A. and took up residence in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California, where his neighbours were Racoons, Black Bear, Cougar, Big Horn Sheep, Bob Cat and Golden Eagles to name just a few " it was heaven " , he says.  It was Davids insatiable interest in animals, their conservation and habitats, that began his career as a wildlife artist.  David is based in the U.S. at present.


David has always had an affinity with the animals that he paints.  His paintings are the result of many hours spent in the field observing, sketching and photographing wildlife and their unique habitats, followed by many more hours in his studio striving to reproduce that perfection of light, composition, contrast and colour harmony that was observed whilst in the field.


David's original paintings, have raised considerable amounts of money for worthy causes throughout America and the British Isles, " it's very important to give something back, to conserving wild places on this earth, therefore ensuring ongoing habitat, for the many different and unique creatures that inhabit this beautiful planet with us ", he says.


This is the philosophy of one man, who receives immense pleasure from painting animals.


David has been " featured artist ", at a number of shows, both in America and the U.K. In 2003 one of David's originals was exhibited at the Mall Galleries, London, U.K. having been juried into the finals from an entry of over 10,000.  His artwork has been featured in magazine and newspaper editorials.

In March 2007, one of David's originals, was featured on the cover of the international magazine, " The Falconers and Raptor Conservation ",

in 2009 and 2010 David's original paintings were featured three times, on the cover of the international magazine, " Irish Country Sports and Country Life ".
