Voyage of the Beagle
A celebration of Charles Darwin’s epic voyage around the coast of South America in HMS Beagle, captained by Sir Robert Fitzroy. This amazing journey would give the young Darwin much of the knowledge he needed to form his theory of evolution by natural selection, changing the course of natural science.
Life on Planet Three
A painting of planet earth, centring on Africa and simply showing lots of my favourite things in our beautiful world. I liked it so much that I decided to keep the original painting. Let’s hope we can save the amazing biodiversity that gives us such gifts!
The Wallace Line
This painting celebrates the incredible work of my hero, the scandalously unsung Alfred Russel Wallace. Wallace came up with the theory of natural selection independently of Darwin and established the study of biogeography. Darwin gave credit to Wallace, but history has still largely forgotten him.
The Wallace Line itself is a biogeographical boundary that separates Asia and Australia. During his travels through the Indonesian archipelago in the mid 19th century, Wallace observed that to the west of the island of Lombok only Asiatic species occur, and that to the east of Bali is a mixture of Asiatic and Australian species. You can find out more about Wallace in my blog.
A pack of three greetings cards of my paintings of British icons: the plays of William Shakespeare, British wildlife and the shipping forecast. Each card measures 5" x 7" and comes with an envelope. Cards are blank inside for your own message.
