Monarch Butterfly and Thistle (Landscape)


One of a new series of watercolour butterfly paintings.

The Monarch species is the largest butterfly seen in the British Isles, and is also one of our rarest migrants. This butterfly is known for its ability to migrate across large distances. The migrations in north America are one of the greatest natural phenomena in the world – where the adult butterflies can migrate from as far north as Canada to the overwintering grounds in very specific sites in Mexico, the west coast of California and Florida.

Most sightings in the UK are concentrated in the south and west of both England and Ireland. There is a particular concentration in Cornwall and the Scilly Isles.

Welcome to my gallery.  " The happy highways where I went and cannot come again" (A.E.Houseman.) I hope you enjoy browsing and perhaps find a painting to your taste as well. I have sold over 3000 paintings internationally to individuals and to corporate groups, including medical and dental centres, restaurants and offices and my work has been exhibited at many galleries. I graduated from a British university and have also won awards for poetry which has been published in North America, Europe, India and Britain. I use a variety of art media including watercolour, acrylic and oil and my themes include landscapes, sea views, flowers and abstract design. Some of my recent work has a dream like quality and is born from our rich cultural heritage of myths, legends and poetry which evoke feelings of mystery and enchantment. The paintings come initialled on the front, signed and dated on the back and with a Certificate of Authenticity. They are on a frame with painted gallery edges, so are ready to hang. Thank you for looking.
