I have been looking to build my own website for some time and i can announce that it's finally done and up and running.I was looking for a contemporary feel to the site without the awful clutter that you see on so many sites these days.The website draws together the various components of my art business with all my original drawings on display as well as links through to my greetings card collection,my limited edition prints and of course the blog here.A sort of one stop shop for all things clive meredith.I hope you'll find the time to have a look and of course i would appreciate any feedback you care to give on the site.the address is www.clivemeredithstudio.com
South coast based Clive Meredith is an entirely self-taught artist and has been working professionally since 1993 specialising in detailed portrayals of wildlife from both Britain and abroad. Clive's initial interest in wildlife and the countryside was fostered in his early years, brought up the son of a dairy farmer, and spending hours outside in the Shropshire countryside birdwatching and larking about on the river Severn and its streams in his hometown of Shrewsbury. Working in both oils and mixed media,observation is vital to Clive's working practice.Each painting reveals meticulous attention to detail,achievable only by hours spent in the field observing and photographing subjects in their natural habitat.As a result Clive has become renowned for the stunning realism of his images and an incredibly assured ability to inject real life and character into his works. His art has been extensively published with over 80 limited edition releases to date and can be found in galleries throughout the uk and beyond. In 2010 Clive was named Wildlife Artist of the Year by Wildscape magazine after winning the prestigious annual competition with his image 'The Egret pool' and appeared as a finalist in the DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year 2010,2012 and 2013 with works exhibited at The Mall Galleries in London. Clive is a member of the Pencil Art Society and the RSPB.
