heatherirvinefineart's Shop Announcement

Hi and welcome to my shop featuring many of my artworks! :) I am a full time artist specialising in wildlife, canine and equestrian subjects concentrating on movement and character with a dash of impressionism thrown in.

Most of my horse sketches are drawn from life or out of my head from memory and my Jack Russell dogs probably provide most (all...) of the inspiration for my terrier pieces! Please have a look at my sister shop dedicated to terriers and their dog friends here on Etsy - terrierzs.etsy.com where I have cards and prints galore.

I have been lucky enough to witness many beasts and landscapes throughout both Africa and America which has been and is the continous driving force for my wildlife subjects. I regularly exhibit with NEWA, and have been lucky enough to exhibit and sell with SWLA and the Society of Equestrian Artists. In 2012, two of my wildlife paintings got through to the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year Award, one came runner up and my painting 'The Last Winter' won it's category and then went on to win overall too! The prize was a wonderful 10 day safari back to Botswana. In 2013 I also won a category in this competition, came runner up in another and had two commended pieces also. I have also exhibited at the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London for the last three years. In 2015 David Shepherd himself awarded my painting as his personal favourite!
