I have always loved dogs, and in 1989 I started my career as a Pet Portrait artist; drawing mainly pet dog portraits. Mans association with the wolf stems back 1,000's of years and has subsequently led to our modern day relationship with dogs. I have actively supported wildlife conservation groups for the past 40 years, and since becoming a Wildlife Artist, have always dreamed of illustrating a book for a conservation society. In 2006, my love of dogs and my journey into the world of art brought me back full circle; to the beginning of mans relationship with our four-legged furry friends. I was delighted to be invited to illustrate two books on Wolf Conservation written by Marco Musiani.
Through this commission I met my good friend Denise Taylor, from the UK Wolf Conservation Trust. Denise kindly provided the photograph reference used for my wolf pastel drawing, and in 2009 my 'Wolf Portait' artwork was selected as a Finalist in the 'BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year' competition. To have the opportunity to study wolves for this project and to portray this noble wolf in pastels, was a very special experience.
