Freelance Artist - Wildlife Specialist

Profile

From a very young age, I have been interested in our natural environment and over the years I have spent much time observing animals and birds, to later capture them in watercolour, gouache, pastel or pencil.

I strive to illustrate animals, birds and their surroundings with meticulous attention to detail so as to portray wildlife in its natural setting.

I studied Scientific and Natural History Illustration at the prestigious Blackpool and Fylde College, and graduated with a BA (Hons) in 1996.  After graduating, I gained a Princes Youth Business Award Grant which enabled me to acquire the photographic and art equipment essential to start up as a freelance artist.  

I have exhibit my work at national exhibitions, such as The National Exhibition of Wildlife Art, Gordale, Chester and have auctioned work at the world renowned Christies Wildlife Auction, London.

I am also a proffesional Picture Framer and frame all my own work. Some of my paintings are on view at the Millhouse Framing Studio, 71b Church Street, Standish, Wigan, Lancashire  WN6 0JT.

Besides my passion for painting wildlife, I have also done numerous commissions of subjects as varied as landscapes, houses, cars and pets.  Please contact me at nigelbuckels@hotmail.com for any enquiries regarding commissions.
