Artistes animaliers

MAYS Stella

Cette artiste Anglaise, primée à de nombreuses reprises, est très concernée par la perte des habitats naturels de la faune sauvage.

"For me as an artist the draw of the natural world is irresistible. Painting wild animals in their natural environment offers an opportunity to escape this shrinking congested world, at least for now... But habitat loss threatens most of my subjects and supporting conservation is at the core of my work.

I always work in pastel, the vibrancy and immediacy suits my artistic style and impatient nature! Since becoming a mum I have less time to work but more ideas than ever. When I get to my studio it is hard to slow down, the result of this is less meticulous pictures with more original compositions, ironically just what I aspired to when I had all the time in the world!

I was born in London in 1973 and for as long as I can remember I have always loved nature. I started drawing horses at an early age. Since then I have painted a wide range of subjects although big cats have become a favourite. As an artist I am self taught and work in pastel. I am fascinated by the way light falls on a subject, while an ambition to create original compositions increasingly influences my work. I have been fortunate to sell work all over the world often in support of conservation. Art for me is a way to express my passion for wildlife and to communicate the need to protect the natural world."
