New Artist: Jeremy Paul. We are happy to announce that renowned wildlife artist Jeremy Paul has joined our art agency.
Born in Accrington, Lancashire, UK Jeremy had a successful career in marine biology before becoming a professional Wildlife Artist.
After receiving a Doctorate for research, his work took him to live in Spain and some of the most beautiful and remote areas of the British Isles.
This was his first experience of true wilderness and abundant wildlife and it was here that he started painting seriously.
A completely self-taught artist he works in acrylics, developing the painting in many layers of paint with extensive use of underpainting and glazes to alter the tone and atmosphere of the work.
“My aim as a wildlife artist is not merely to illustrate but to impart the atmosphere of the setting and the feel of wildlife in its natural environment.
I spend many hours in the field observing wildlife and looking for settings and lighting to inspire an idea for a painting.
My greatest thrill so far has been following tigers in the wild and helping raise funds for their conservation through my paintings.”
Jeremy has travelled extensively to study the subject he loves.
He has had many one-man exhibitions and his work features in public and private collections around the world.
His has won accolades from the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, Wildscape Magazine and BBC Wildlife Artist of the year to name a few.
