Diane Bailey

Close observation of wildlife while studying zoology, scuba diving around the world and working for conservations groups, has led to Diane's love of depicting creatures both wild and known to her. 

Each painting, mainly in Acrylic on board, is intended to be striking from a distance but viewed at close quarters, textures and attention to detail become apparent; a legacy from Diane's years as a designer and illustrator.

A BBC Wildlife Artist of The Year Winner, Diane's work has also been selected for exhibition by, amongst others, The National Exhibition of Wildlife Art, The Society of Wildlife Artists, London.
