ENDANGERED: Fine Art & Photography Contest 2018 Submission.
I’ve always had a passionate interest in wildlife conservation around the world and wanted to get involved in raising awareness of not only endangered species but also animal cruelty and mistreatment. This has led to me giving paintings or prints to animal charities and worthy causes to raise funds. It’s very rewarding to know that your work raises awareness for an animal that needs rescuing or is endangered. Quite a lot of my work is sold with a percentage of the sale going to an animal charity.
Since 2007 I have been concentrating solely portraiture of animals and wildlife, I have been developing my own style and techniques using China clay covered board, ink and acrylics, airbrush and erasing tools.
I am in a good position as an artist having just had my first solo show selling 75% of the work created for the event.
