Guy Hobbs

It amazes me that it took so long for me to marry my love for wildlife with my passion for art. Obviously it takes far smarter people than me to make such profound connections (in this case my wife), but once made it changed my world.

I have had an interest in both drawing and painting my whole life and when the suggestion was made to focus on wildlife I decided to go 'back to the drawing board' quite literally.

Since then I have been developing a technique that combines layers of acrylic paint, coloured pencil and transparent acrylic inks, a process that really allows me to capture the subtleties and intricacies of nature.


My highest priority when portraying a subject is to capture its consciousness. My subjects are engaged with their world, watching things beyond the confines of a frame - often regarding the viewer directly - or something out of frame. This is important to me, birds and animals are seldom random or vague, they are focused on their world with real intensity. It is this intensity I want to capture. When you encounter a wild thing in its own habitat there is a moment where you regard it and it regards you and the rest of the world just becomes background. That is a very real and special connection and one I want to share through my art.
