Carl continues to paint well-observed traditional farmyard scenes and wildlife in close detail and vibrant tones, specialising in miniaturist paintings in oils. His reputation has developed to be the leading painter of chickens in the UK, and has added birds, dogs, ducks, mice, badgers, red squirrels, foxes, hedgehogs, butterflies and other countryside creatures to his repertoire.
He also paints still life of a stunning three-dimensional quality. The hallmark of Carl's work is the particularly fine details and intense rich colours, resulting in a painting of rare quality, depth and great charm. His work is in an increasing number of collections both in the UK and around the world.
