The home of animal artists

Annual Exhibition

The Association of Animal Artists offers opportunities and support to animal artists who have already attained a level of expertise and experience, whether as amateurs or professionals and who wish to promote and exhibit their artwork and further progress their skills.

AAA invites artists to join us for a variety of art events throughout the year. It is the friendship and genuine support that the artists give each other, and to the charities AAA supports, which are the hallmark of the Association.

Membership of AAA is by application. Interested artists are encouraged to get in touch via the application section.

Member of the week is member, Gillian Naylor
Gillian was born in Lytham St. Annes, Lancashire, in 1966.
She grew up playing on the beach, in amongst the sand dunes and nature reserves that are dotted along the Fylde coast. She studied art at school, as do all children, but although she enjoyed and excelled in the subject, she was encouraged to pursue the sciences; another area she excelled in. At 18 she went north to Stirling, Scotland to study for a BSc. in Physics and Mathematics, and it was during this time, surrounded by beautiful hills and glens, that she developed a deep respect for wildlife.

The painting of animals has always remained her favourite subject. She has used a variety of media including soft and oil pastel, gouache, water colour and oil. ... See MoreSee Less

Member of the Week!
This week we are highlighting the wonderful work of member A. Webb. Unfortunately there is no website to enable you to view more of this artists work, but I did manage to get a quote from him so we can find out a little about the man behind the brush!

"In the past my older brother was a designer and painted in watercolour/gouache. I always thought I would like to 'have a go' but did not try until in my forties.
I had an oil-painting starter pack and things went from there. Mainly self-taught, I paint in oils and have always had a keen interest in the natural world. I found myself drawn to painting wildlife, as my style seems suited to painting fur and feathers. I joined The Wildlife Art Society International and have exhibited with them for many years, receiving one award during that time. I also exhibit locally in the Stoke-on-Trent area, and this has led to many commissions painting animals, birds and domestic pets."

Obviously now he is a member of the Association of Animal Artists he will be showing some of his work at our forthcoming exhibition at Castle Park Arts Centre in April. His "Are we there yet?" zebra painting (page banner) is beautiful as is "Splitting Feathers" shown here. ... See MoreSee Less
