Wildlife Works! A group of artists come together in this exhibition to celebrate the beauty of the natural world. They will show a variety of evocative artworks for you to recognise and love.
Ross Buckner Art is a self-taught watercolour pencil artist who creates realistic animal portraits through various layers of pencil strokes and brushwork. Striving to bring forth personality and character through colour blending is what drives him onward on this artistic journey.
Lizzie Perkins is an artist and printmaker producing hand-printed limited editions of wildlife. These are all original pieces of acrylic artwork achieved by means of her own hand-cut stencils and printing through the mesh of a screen. From penguins to zebras, avocets to albatross she strives accurately to represent the beauty and variety of the natural world.
Arti Chaunan is a representational artist born in India and now living in the UK. She is a self-taught artist with a natural talent for drawing portraits and figures. Her initial portraits were influenced by the vibrancy and colors of India but for the last few years, she has been exploring wildlife subjects, using watercolour to create emotive animal portraits. She finds immense joy in bringing out the personalities in their furry faces and has created a vast portfolio of animal paintings. Her work is regularly exhibited in the UK and also shown in International juried exhibitions.
Claire Howarth is a self-taught acrylic animal artist. Her style is big, bold, and bright. Capturing the animal’s personality is as important to her as capturing its texture and colour. There is no animal that she would not want to paint as she loves them all.
