Welcome to the work of 
  PHILIP SNOW, prolific
  Painter &  Writer....

I'm a Wildlife Artist, Book Illustrator, & Writer, based here on Anglesey, North Wales. Here's some favourite themes, Red Kites & Golden Eagles - North Wales, & the Scottish Hebrides, respectively.

My highly acclaimed
‘Light & Flight – Hebridean Wildlife & Landscape Sketchbook’ 
[Brown & Whittaker, Mull]:

And my latest book, 'Tall Tales from an Estuary' - basic
ally an idiosyncratic update of  C. F. 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 etc:

Lavishly illustrated, its the 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. 

And, New BOOKS out soon..ish!:
BIRDS of ARRAN with John Rhead, 2019 edition.....delayed?!

'OWL BUSINESS' - a children's book with the N Wales OWL TRUST, currently being produced.

[Please email enquiries about
prints etc, & I will send you a 
PayPal invoice.]

(These originals now mainly SOLD, but ltd reproduction prints, & many more, are available -  just ask):

My other main book, both taking over 20 yrs of research & sketching, this being one of the most wide-ranging & controversial bird books ever produced: 
‘The Design & Origin of Birds’ 
[DayOne Books UK/USA]. 

Another new book I have recently illustrated, written by Mull & BBC SpringWatch /Autumnwatch, RSPB 
Dave Sexton, is
[Brown & Whittaker, Mull] ... Originally written by the late Mike Madders, & once again 
a best seller, featuring one of the very best Scottish islands for eagles, otters & other glorious Scottish wildlife & landscape.

I have also produced, with wildlife film-maker, John Evans, a Wildlife Filming & Painting DVD:
'A Brush with Wildlife' 
[currently unavailable].
