More Birds From My Rocking Chair ….

Welcome to my gallery and on-line shop. Here you will find some prints from my private collection.

A while back, after a lifetime of watching birds, and inspired by books, and memories of childhood walks and picnics in the country, I started to collect old paintings, prints and books, of landscape and wildlife; which celebrate both the British countryside and its birds. It is my passion!

My chief delight is in nature, and when I look at a picture it is to find something about nature in it, especially some expression of the feeling produced in us by nature, which is, to me, the most important thing in life … (With apologies to W H Hudson – ‘Afoot in England’ – 1909)

The artists are known for being the best in their field, painting and recording a time when Britain was perhaps more in tune with its traditional countryside pursuits. Through their art they can transport us back into nature and somehow keep alive those bygone days.

Many of the prints are rare or not easily found elsewhere. Almost all are old and will show some signs of wear and tear – that is part of their charm. They each have a story to tell ….

My prices may be seen to be a little high when compared to similar pictures on eBay. However they have been professionally mounted, framed and glazed, with individually selected mounts and refurbished vintage wooden frames – to best complement the picture. Sometimes it has taken years before I have found a combination of mount and frame I am happy with! That makes the difference. Each print also comes with a brief history of the painting and an artist biography.

So share my passion – buy a picture – write a Review – and be part of the story …


I do have some other prints, by artists such as Tunnicliffe, Basil Ede, and Leo Paul Robert, mostly unframed, for sale – please message me for more details. You can see some examples in my post ‘A Carousel of Birds’
