My heartfelt thanks to the wonderful people who have helped to make the painting of many of my pictures possible:

Most of my paintings are produced using resources from my own stock of photographs and frozen specimens (gifts, road kills, zoos, etc.), and sketches from field trips. But, unfortunately, as I am not a ‘globetrotter’, exotic resources, and British animals and plants I have been unable to see, have had to come from other sources. I am indebted and most grateful to the following individuals and institutions (and others, who prefer not to be named) who have very kindly provided resources so that the pictures designed and painted are as true to the subject as possible. Without their consent to use photographs and specimens, none of these paintings would have come to fruition. Please note, the four-digit numbers (1407, 1306, etc.) are my Artist Codes (picture number identifiers).
