Bonhoga Exhibition


Still a few days to catch my Bonhoga exhibition finishing on October 1st if you’re on Shetland

Solo Exhibition at the Donald Watson Gallery near Edinburgh


My last exhibition at this Gallery at the Scottish Ornithologists’ Club HQ was in 2018. Since then I’ve been working steadily to produce fifty new prints which are all on display here. The prints are inspired by the wildlife of Galloway which is my home and by frequent visits to Orkney and Shetland. There are prints of birds, insects and mammals in my characteristic style. A developing interest in moths is evident! The exhibition features reduction woodcuts and linocuts, hand coloured relief prints, etchings and even a cardboard print…. Unframed prints and cards are also available.

New Christmas card packs

Society of Wildlife Artists’ Natural Eye Exhibition


The SWLA’s annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries opens on October 13th and runs until the 22nd. It looks as though it will be stunning! Here’s a link to the online exhibition.

I have 6 prints in the exhibition including this one of a Common Tern in Lerwick harbour and Flight (above); a woodcut of Gulls taking off with the Mull of Galloway in the background.

“PigeonPosted artwork offered at special price


I’m making my three Pigeonposted designs, made for the recently published notelets (available here from my online shop) available now. They are small editions which are approximately A3 in size and each one features four birds: Curlews, Oystercatchers and Ringed Plovers. They are all reduction linocuts. The price is a bit lower than usual because they were designed as artwork for print, but they are all signed and editioned properly and the work is to my usual standard. Here’s a link to the Oystercatchers sketch in my shop
