His masterful use of acrylics creates unsurpassed levels of texture, depth, form and detail, from translucency through to the complex texture of fur and feathers.  Although he specializes in life-sized animals, his works also include intricate highly detailed monochrome animal images, animal and bird portraits, birds in flight, butterflies, incandescent flowers, surreal art, scenes of the Cosmos, science – fantasy, and landscapes.
