It’s on my home page but for those of you who have missed it, after reaching the finals of their 29th Annual Competition, the editors at The Artist’s Magazine have decided to feature me as their Artist of the Month for January!
Now, that’s definitely a good way to start the New Year!
So if you want to know a bit more about the creation of “Over the Edge”, here is the article!
A big thank you to Cherie Haas for this opportunity of sharing my passion for wildlife art!

MIWAS Summer Exhibition 2012: new venue, but the fun is the same!

Back from MIWAS 2012 Summer Exhibition, and boy, that was good!

New venue, new dates… to be honest I was a bit afraid of the change as the Marwell zoo was a magical place to exhibit wildlife art and well, old habits die hard :mrgreen:
But those fears have been quickly dismissed when we saw the huge crowd that had gathered for the preview night! And we didn’t even had time to set up our pitch for the art market on the Friday morning before scores of visitors came in to have a look at all the great art on display! The communication around the event really worked well so thanks to all the MIWAS team and all who made the buzz!

As usual, the atmosphere was fantastic, we had a lot of fun, talked and laughed a lot with other artists and visitors, made new friends. The place was great with a good light (except maybe during the night market where you needed cat’s eyes to see in the dark corners ;-) ), kind of a labyrinth with all the inside corridors but it provided a good opportunity to continue the dicussion with buyers on the way to the room for credit card payments.

We even had a special guest appearance with Stephen the Skunk. I didn’t know skunks could be kept as pets and they are truly cute and funny creatures with fat little bellies you just want to rub and stroke! Wanna take a bet on how many paintings of skunks we’ll have next year for the 2013 exhibition?

All in all it was a very good exhibition, I sold “Aurora song” (my latest wolf painting) and “Morning Patrol” along with lots of prints, so a big thank you to all the art lovers, collectors and buyers for supporting my art. If you missed any of them or want to buy some more, please visit the gallery and just add them to your shopping cart!

See you next year guys!

Sneak peek: you can see the first brushstrokes of my new painting of a leopard here :-) If you already like what you see and would like to reserve it, inquiries may come directly to me.

Society Of Feline Artists SOFA annual exhibition

I have been accepted as an Associate Member of the Society Of Feline Artists (SOFA) in May and yesterday I took the Eurostar to London (with its Olympics exhilaration :-) ) to bring my paintings for the selection of their annual exhibition that will take place at the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery from the 23rd of August to the 14th of September 2012.

It was nice to meet fellow artists and the very friendly gallery staff. My 4 paintings have been accepted so I will be showing “Golden beauty”, “White Beauty”, “Jungle Ghost” and “Sweet Dreams”.

Sweet Dreams is my latest 8” x 8” acrylic painting on watercolor paper and it is kind of a record painting since due to severe delay caused by back pain, it was created in 2 days and 2 nights only (with 3 hours of sleep in between :mrgreen: ) I thought I would never finish it on time but here it is!

Sweet Dreams, acrylic painting of a sleeting kitten

This show promises to be something very special with around 300 incredible artworks exhibited, so if you are a cat lover living not too far from London, don’t miss it! I have some brochures available; if you are interested don’t hesitate to contact me!

Jungle Ghost

I completed this painting in a record time (well, for me it is ;-) ) as it took “only” 2 weeks from canvas prep to frame mounting !!! I was on a deadline so that can be motivating, especially when you tend to procrastinate like me :mrgreen:

“Jungle Ghost”, 24” x 12” acrylic on canvas of a black leopard stalking through the jungle. A big thank you to “Papillon” for the reference photo of Enea, a black leopard of the feline park “le Parc des Felins” near Paris.
