Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild

WILDLIFE ART SUPPORTING BORN FREE

Gary Hodges

World renowned Wildlife Artist, and long term supporter Gary Hodges is the UK’s best selling and most collectable pencil artist. He has sold over 106,000 personally signed and numbered prints from 124 limited editions. Incredibly 113 of these editions have sold out; very few artists working in any medium can make this claim. The remaining eleven editions are available to buy from his website shop.

Over the years the huge demand for Gary’s prints have led to a lucrative secondary market rewarding collectors with more than just the sheer beauty of his drawings. Greenpeace published his very first print in 1987 and the 850 edition then sold for £8.50 each. In recent years that same print “Green Turtle”, has changed hands for up to an incredible £3,500.00 - an investment increase of more than 400 times!

Chris Wright

Shortlisted for the 2010 David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year awards

Chris Wright is a professional wildlife artist, whose reputation and client base continues to grow internationally. His life-like, sensitively observed pencil drawings, ranging from ostrich and tigers to buffalo and elephants, are widely admired by collectors and conservationists alike.

As you might expect from someone who works in Born Free’s Conservation Team (as Programmes Officer since 2006), the Foundation is Chris’ chosen charity, with a contribution from every sale of his work going towards Born Free’s field conservation projects. 

His originals and limited edition prints are on sale here, and in galleries throughout East and Southern England. For more details of exhibitions, and to see more of his work, visit www.cwright.co.uk.

Ian Redmond, OBE and Ambassador for the UN Year of the Gorilla:

“It seems strange that a few pencil lines on a piece of paper can sometimes say more than the millions of pixels in a colour photograph, but if Chris Wright was holding the pencil, they do.”

 


 

Martin Fitzpatrick

Janu
'Janu' - to commemorate the rescue & relocation of four male lions in Ethiopia by the Born Free Foundation

Martin is a signature member of the exclusive Worldwide Nature Artists Group (WNAG) and together with his ongoing support for several conservation charities for which his artworks have raised vital funding, has seen Martin’s reputation soar.

Martin has exhibited with numerous art societies and has staged several local exhibitions of his work, winning acclaim from fellow artists and members of the public alike,  His work is rapidly approaching collector status in certain sectors of the UK market.

Through many years of experience with photography, Martin has become very aware of the extreme detail and excellence required to interpret captured images into pencil and graphite artworks.

I think my drawings are different to the vast majority of graphite artists because I use every tone available, from the white of the actual paper to virtual black.

Jane Lee McCracken

Inspired by her passion for childhood memories and memoires, fairy tales, Russia and Eastern Europe, forests and wolves and her continuing interest in WWII Jane makes complex drawings with colour or black, red, blue and green Biros. Often using photographs she has taken of films and documentaries as well as objects from her own home as the basis for pieces she builds layers of images in colour biro as if film stills were projected on top of one another resulting in colourful abstracted pieces with an ethereal quality.

Her aim is to make drawings of beauty that on closer inspection provoke consideration of loss whether it is lost eras or loss from war and disaster, prompting empathy for the emotional and physical scars experienced by humans, animals and the environment. Her ‘fairytale-esque’ drawings transport the viewer to far-away places and exigent times just as tales of old have transported innumerable generations.

Jane is selling 'Tiger' a limited run of 200 signed and numbered giclee prints with over 50% going to the Born Free Foundation, which can be found here

Patrick Donlan was born in 1962 in Warrington, England. He studied Literature and Philosophy at Middlesex University, London.  After graduating he travelled to Asia residing in Japan, Thailand and Taiwan and is now based in Hong Kong. He has been painting for over 20 years.

"It is estimated that only 3,500 wild tigers remain in the world, and numbers of this iconic species are continuing to decrease. The main threats to wild tigers include: habitat loss and fragmentation due to mining, logging, farming and human settlement; depletion of their prey base; conflict with humans; and poaching for their skins, and other parts for Traditional Asian Medicines, such as bone."
