Welcome to my Daily Paintworks page! I'm the author of six books on the perils and pleasures of the natural world, including my newest, The Drunken Botanist, and three New York Times bestsellers, Flower Confidential, Wicked Plants, and Wicked Bugs.
I've been painting in oils for ten years. It's a wonderful break from writing and gives me a kind of instant gratification that writing books, with the long delay before publication, never does. I love to paint New York City, and I try to take a painting trip there at least once a year. Some of my cityscapes are from other travels: to Europe, Mexico, and all over North America. I also do portraits of chickens (my own hens in particular!) and some still life. I hope you enjoy my work.
