Tom McOwat: 20th October 1947 – 27th October 2021

This site features his art and wildlife interests



Most of my current prints are etchings


My paintings are sometime just a response to observed colour and shapes or even just nostalgic interests in mountains.

Pen and Ink

I enjoy sketching with a dip pen but most of my line work has been illustrations for various publications.


These remarkable mammals have been an almost obsessive interest since 1970.

Greater horseshoe bats

A once rare species that I have a special interest in.



My small pictures are often portraits / studies of particular species that appeal to me or I have encountered.

Greetings Cards

These are mainly small etchings made into blank cards that can be adapted to any occasions.

About me
