Tom McOwat 1947 – 2021. Tom died peacefully on Wednesday 27th October 2021

This site will continue to 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
