Lisa Ann Watkins
Graduating in design back in the early nineties I now combine my passion for creating art with my love for animals. I use my art to raise awareness & funds for animal conservation groups & charities across the globe. I am an invited Artist Partner to the Snow Leopard Trust & have worked most recently with Animals Asia, Wildlife SOS & Hauser Bears, to name just a few.
My specialist area is pet portraiture & wildlife artwork but what sets me apart from many other animal artists is my desire to capture the character & not just the likeness. I work very closely with my clients so that I can make as close a connection as possible to my subject. As you look through the sample images on my site you will also see that I put a lot of focus on the eyes…the windows to the soul.
Private commission work can be carried out in various mediums & sizes to suit the clients requirements. I will always advise on the best medium to represent the most lifelike representation & offer different sizing/style options to suit.
Mediums that I specialize in include;
- Colored Pencil
- Watercolour pencil
I am currently a member of TWASI (The Wildlife Art Society International), UKCPS (UK Colored Pencil Society) & WGAS (West Gloucestershire Art Society)
I have exhibited at:
- Taurus Crafts August 2013
- Dennis Potter Room, Ross on Wye March 2014
- Nature in Art, Twigworth May 2014
- Solo Exhibition at Taurus Crafts May/June 2014
- Ilminster Arts Studio June 2014
- The Miners, Sling – ongoing exhibition through WGAS
I hope that you enjoy your visit to my site where you will see just a snapshot of some of my work to date. If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me direct.
