Wildlife, Sporting, Landscape, Pet and Portrait Artist and Photographer
Kent artist Paul Apps is a passionate wildlife artist and photographer. His work captures the unique character of the subject and interaction with its natural environment. While Paul creates images of wildlife from all over the world, he frequently returns to the expanse of the African landscape and fauna to inspire his grand canvases. Since his first visit to the continent in 1989, Paul has travelled there annually to collect reference and experience the thrilling game and panoramas.
Paul was born in the Romney Marshes of Kent in 1958. Through exploring the rural countryside surrounding his home, Paul rapidly developed a love of the unique landscape and wildlife.
With no formal art training, painting was initially a hobby. However increasing demand initiated the progression to professional artist in 1987.
Ever since, Paul's success and reputation as a wildlife, portrait and equestrian artist has flourished. As well as exhibitions in the UK, artworks have been displayed in Africa, Singapore, Europe and the USA, where his first solo show sold out on the opening night. Sotheby's, Christies and Bonhams have all seen images sell for record prices. With over 60 fine art prints to his credit, originals are also keenly sought after by collectors around the globe.
Furthermore, Paul has taught art techniques for many years, and contributed to several tuition magazines. He has demonstrated a vast array of art products for various prestigious materials manufacturers.
Supporting wildlife conservation has always been of paramount importance to Paul. Sales of his work have helped raise thousands of pounds for various charities, including Tuskforce, The Born Free Foundation, The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation and The Injured Jockey's Fund.
Paul is consistently looking at new ways of representing wildlife on canvas through experimentation. Currently he is using impressionistic, abstract brushstrokes, mingled with the detail of fur or feather, to create outstanding compositions. The fundamental aim, to paint the best images possible and raise funds for wildlife conservation.
My work is sold in several galleries. They are displayed on each image that remains for sale.
