SWLA 50 Years Anniversary Exhibition

I am currently exhibiting a painting at the prestigious Nature In Art, Gloucestershire as part of the Society of Wildlife Artists 50 Years Anniversary Exhibition.
Current SWLA members were asked to chose a fellow SWLA member from any point of the 50 year history and write a short piece on why they have been inspired by that artist. With examples from artists spanning the history of the Society and insights from the members on why they have chosen them, it is a fascinating show with a wide selection of work on display.

I was deeply honoured to have been chosen as an ‘inspirational artist’ and was extremely touched and flattered that the artist who selected me was the wonderful young painter Nick Derry (  The exhibition at Nature in Art runs from July 30th to September 1st.
Here’s the painting I’m exhibiting and one of Nick’s astonishing pieces;
Wings of the North - Waxwings (Tim Wootton)

 Blue-headed Wagtail (Nick Derry)
