This artist is open to commissions.
I'm a wildlife illustrator and bear maker based in Sheffield, where I run my little online shop, Wimberry Arts and Crafts. I've spent most of my working life as a zoo keeper, and I have been privileged to work with some of the world's rarest and weirdest creatures. In 2020, I decided to take a step back and focus more on my artwork, but that doesn't mean I spend any less time with animals - one of my great pleasures is walking our dog Eric in the wonderful natural landscapes this area has to offer (occasionally picking a wimberry as we go). My artwork is always very detailed. I mostly work in graphite and ink for my commissioned illustrations and portraits, but I can never just do one thing! I also enjoy using gouache, watercolours and acrylics, and I sew vintage bears just to mix things up. My main drive is to always improve myself and my craft, explore the beauty of the natural world, and to showcase the species in greatest need of our attention and care.
