I’m passionate about ecology, wildlife epidemiology and environmental conservation. I love pursuing photography and illustration as hobbies and hope that I can raise awareness about the conservation of biodiversity through my art and research (I’m currently researching the devastating fungal disease, chytridiomycosis, which is threatening frogs worldwide).
If you want to know more about why I am passionate about conservation (and why you should be too!), please download and read this excellent, easy to read and recent (2010) FREE text on Conservation Biology by the luminaries in the field (deliberately made available by them for free as a pdf to raise awareness about conservation):
“Conservation Biology for all” 6.44Mb pdf
Media: FW black acrylic ink and Windsor & Newton Artists watercolours on Arches smooth hot-pressed 300g 100% cotton rag paper. 20/0 sable brush for ink work, and 20/0, 3/0, 2 and 6 sable brushes for watercolours. My favourite colours from the WN range are prussian blue and sepia.
I’ve pledged to donate a portion of proceeds from sales to conservation organisations, and also towards supporting research on management strategies for frog population recovery.
You can find my originals on my Artists for Conservation website:

I’m also a member of the Queensland Wildlife Artists Society. Please visit their website for exhibition details
