An Unbreakable Bond
Dawn of the King
As a pet portrait and wildlife artist, my vision is to use my art for good and give back to the animals that inspire me so much. Within the next four years, I aim to establish my own wildlife foundation based around art and to use my own art as well as others to promote the needs of wildlife, both British and rest of the world through holding exhibitions and events.
The past four years have been used to develop my artistic skill using pencils and now, feeling I have mastered this medium, I’m looking to improve my composition and meaning behind each piece.
My inspiration completely comes from the natural world and how animals interact within it. Each and every creature is so different, they have their own stories to tell and the relationships they have with each other and their surroundings extremely differ from species to species. However, from studying so many different creatures for my art I have come to realise that we all have three basic fundamentals. Love; either for each other, offspring or to reproduce. Fear; to keep out of danger or give warnings to those threatening danger. A need to stay alive through habits such as finding the best food and water sources.
The medium I favour mostly is graphite and coloured pencils as they suit the realist style that I strive to achieve in all my work. Having animals as the inspiration for my work means that many strokes of fur needs to be drawn so the fine point that pencils offer lend themselves perfectly to my vision.
