Hello! Welcome to the other online home of Philip Snow

Golden Eagles, Mull. 2013.

I'm a Wildlife Artist, Book Illustrator, & Writer, based here on Anglesey, North Wales. Here's the cover of one of my latest books:
It's basically an idiosyncratic update of Tunnicliffe RA OBE's classic 'Shorelands Summer Diary', largely about the beautiful Malltraeth Estuary right outside my window - but putting it in a global context of changing migration & climate patterns, & human influence.

The book is a lavishly illustrated story of this typical Welsh estuary & its exotic avian visitors from all over the earth, told & pictured by its garrulous guardian & hoary historian, Howell the Heron! He's usually sat by the bridge...

It [the book, not the heron] was recently presented to HRH Prince Charles [along with a painting, & print, of Red Squirrels], who later enthused about how much he 'enjoyed the book' & 'lovely paintings'. 

Although I have contributed illustrations or painted covers for over 70 Books, and many Magazines, Prints, Prints & Cards, Reserve Maps & Leaflets, etc, and contributed Paintings to many top Exhibitions in various countries, this is only the 7th Book I have both written & illustrated.

The other two main books have taken over 20 yrs of research & sketching, the 1st being one of the most wide-ranging & controversial bird books ever
‘The Design & Origin of Birds’ 
[DayOne Books UK/USA];
the 2nd, the highly acclaimed

Light & Flight – Hebridean Wildlife & Landscape Sketchbook’ 
[Brown & Whittaker, Mull].

I have also produced, with wildlife film-maker, John Evans, a Wildlife Filming & Painting DVD:
'A Brush with Wildlife' [currently unavailable].
Another new book I have illustrated, written by Mull & BBC SpringWatch / Autumnwatch, RSPB 
Dave Sexton, is
[Brown & Whittaker, Mull] ...already
a best seller, on one of the very best islands for eagles & otters etc.
