Pictorial delights include large watercolours of the more spectacular Maya monuments in Mexico and Central America, followed by oil paintings of all the species of the neo-tropical Cracidae, the most endangered bird family in the Americas. There are also evocative assemblages of maritime objects and still-life's, and landscapes.

His work resulted in his election as a fellow of both the Linnean Society of London and the Royal Geographical Society.
