Diane Bailey

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

I enjoy bringing an authenticity as well as personality and life to my work.

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 my years as a designer and illustrator.

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