Category winner “Beneath the Water” and overall BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year winner with pastel painting “Dangerous Waters”
The judges said: “This outstanding piece of work fulfils all the requirements to be the overall winner of this competition. A beautiful and sympathetic study of these amazing creatures, it presents the perfect balance of technical skill and atmosphere. Many congratulations -
I am so pleased that this painting won the title as it takes me right back to my roots. Lion fish were the first wildlife species that captivated me when I was only about 11 -

I adore this image of the baby orang-

Finalist in the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year British Birds category with pastel painting “Preening”
I love painting birds and find each feather to be like an individual work of art. The reference photos I took of a mallard duck preening show off his feathers beautifully.
