David began painting relatively late in life, initially his drawings were limited to model aircraft design, but having embarked on a career in rural estate management, he began to draw subjects from the wild. This led to further study in Scientific Illustration and several years working as a freelance illustrator, both for advertising agencies and the likes of the Freshwater Biological Association. His early work featured in Images 11 the Best of British Illustration, and exhibited at the Mall Galleries, Singer-Friedlander Exhibition.
Following a year in Australia, he returned to land management, being recognised with a Pride of Northumbria and two Laurent-Perrier conservation awards. There followed more academic qualifications, an MSc in Natural Resource Management, and later another in Geographical Information Systems. He is proud to have been elected a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in 2004 and has a Private Pilots Licence.
Land management again gave way to painting as his work become more widely collected, notably being commissioned by a Chairman of the World Bank. There is a strong ecological basis for his painting.
