He started drawing with absolute compulsive determination when he came home from brain rehab 6 years ago. These coloured pencil drawings are to illustrate the species list for Severn Farm Pond, which is part of Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust, where Ralph volunteers. His drawings were noticed by Linda James of Brooks Art who very kindly uploaded them to this site.

What quantity - so many creatures and plants ! And the detail is beautiful - initially I was impressed by the sheer quantity, then on closer inspection, discovered many, many favourites. Ralph has his own very distinct style.

These drawings are really animated and have such personality. By spending so much time on his work and absorbing himself in it completely, Ralph has developed a way of seeing and a distinct graphic style all of his own. They're great!
