Mrs Sarais Crawshaw's profile

  • I give daytime or evening talks and demonstrations to Art Societies and other Groups. This usually involves a Pastel Demonstration, but I can also demonstrate in Acrylics , or in other drawing media, particularly Colour Pencils of all types. In
    2001 People's Choice Award at Rugby Art Gallery Open Exhibition,with "Taking it Easy", painting of a leopard. 2002 won Highly Commended Professional Category of Wildscape Artist of the Year Competition with "Who Goes There?", painting of a leopard.
    Wildlife and wild places have fascinated me since childhood. After teaching art at secondary school until 1983, I now work as a full-time artist. I mostly use acrylic paint or soft pastel,but also sometimes woodcut & linocut prints, papercut, pencil or mixed media. I am particularly inspired by cats of all sizes, and many of these are found in my work. Most of my work is based on my love of British wildlife, and I spend time in the countryside surrounding my home, or in the wilder areas of Wales, Northumberland and Scotland, gathering reference for my work back at the studio. I make quick field sketches, use a camcorder and camera, and try to observe, and later depict the animals in their natural habitat. I exhibit regularly throughout Britain, & give talks, demonstrations and workshops. My pictures are used by Greetings Cards publishers, and I have illustrated several features for BBC Wildlife Magazine.
