Welcome to the work of Philip Snow
, Painter & Writer....



I'm a Wildlife Artist, Book Illustrator, & Writer, based here on Anglesey, North Wales. Here's the cover of one of my latest local 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. 

New BOOKS out soon..ish!:

BIRDS of ARRAN with John Rhead, new edition.

OWL BUSINESS - a children's book with the N Wales OWL TRUST

Another new book I have recently illustrated, written by Mull & BBC SpringWatch / Autumnwatch, RSPB 
eagle-man, 
Dave Sexton, is
'BIRDWATCHING ON MULL & IONA'
[Brown & Whittaker, Mull] ... already 
a best seller, on one of the very best islands for eagles, otters & other Scottish wildlife/landscape.

'Tall Tales'  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 produced:
 
‘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].
