About NealGriffinArt

On Etsy since 2016

I am a multi award winning professional artist from Southampton. From an early age I displayed a passion for drawing and painting and with encouragement from my GCSE art teacher Mr Clegg I began to develop my skills. I continued on to do A-Levels and then on to a foundation course at Portsmouth College of Art & Design. In 1992 I enrolled at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge for a degree in Graphic Arts & Illustration, specialising in printmaking. Graduating in 1995 with a 2:1 BA Hons degree.

Since graduating much of my inspiration has come from my love of the natural world with much of my work concentrating on studies of animals with a particular interest in wildlife. I try to capture the essence of the animal concentrating on light, form and movement to produce a piece of work with the feeling of depth and life. I work in both 2D and 3D with a variety of mediums including oil, pencil, printing, soapstone, clay and plaster of Paris. Using the medium that is best suited for the piece I want to create.

I was member of the Marwell International Wildlife Art Society from 2003 - 2015. In 2009 I was awarded the prize for the most improved artist and in 2014 I was runner up for the best 3D sculpture.

I have exhibited at the Southern Nature Art Exhibition and also at The National Exhibition of Wildlife Art where in 2009 I was runner up for the David Cook drawing award. In 2017 I won ‘Best Depiction of a Creature in Action’ at the Association of Animal Artists exhibition in Basingstoke. I have also been shortlisted for the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation Artist of the Year in 2013 & 2015 and a finalist in 2018, 2019, where my work was exhibited at the Mall Galleries in London. and in 2020 in the online exhibition. I am also a member of the Romsey Art Group, The Wildlife Art Society International and the Southern Ceramic Group.
