Wheathills Marquetry Art

Everyday life sometimes prevents us or makes it difficult for us to get out in Nature and connect with the outdoors. So, my paintings, for me at least, have provided a link to Wildlife. Not everybody has the opportunity, finance or inclination to visit the places where many species reside, let alone visit the Serengeti to observe Lions or Cheetahs in the wild. With that in mind, in recent years , I have produced the occasional, non native (to the UK) wildlife subject to my portfolio.
Depicting Wildlife subjects in my art is also a tribute to their existence in the world and a way to admire them in a non intrusive way and at the same time, maybe highlight their endangered status and hopefully bring about more awareness to their plight and the ongoing efforts of conservation organisations.

From a personal perspective, painting Animals and Wildlife brings me a greater understanding, admiration and appreciation of the creatures that share my world.
It is my way of honouring and paying tribute to their existence and beauty even more.

My art brings me joy and I hope it can do likewise for those who behold it.
