My Bio
I am a 29-year-old animal artist living in York, in the UK.

I work in watercolour, gouache, and acrylic ink (with both a dip pen and a brush), and do realistic portraits, fun cartoons, and also ink-and-wash pieces.

I don't come here very often any more, so I'm sorry I haven't posted any artwork for a long time or replied to any messages! This is just a quick one to say that I have completely re-done my dog genetics website - check out the new site at http://doggenetics.co.uk It now features more of my artwork :). I hope you all like it, and let me know what you think!

I'm back!

I'm back!

Sorry I disappeared for such a long time - my art business and MA took over and I didn't really have time for DA. However, I've decided to come back and start posting art here again :) I've deleted my "new" account (ringsidephotography), because keeping up with two accounts was just too much, and I'll re-post my favourites from that account here. I've also done some spring cleaning of this account, because I realised it was absolutely full of rubbish, mostly really awful photos. I'm sure none of them will be missed! I also recently became a volunteer photographer for my local RSPCA branch, so I'll post some of the photos I've taken there.

Just wanted to drop a quick thank you for creating your dog genetics website. I had no idea you were on dA till I tried to find some genetics on here and ran into your art. I've done horse color genetics for a few years and recently took a step into dogs, your website was very helpful. Brilliant website, very informative :clap:
