Paul Apps is a passionate wildlife artist. His work captures the unique character of the subject and its interaction with the natural environment. Paul works all over the world but is particularly fond of African landscape and fauna.
With no formal art training, painting was initially a hobby but the increasing demand for his work led him to become a professional artist in 1987. Since then his reputation as an animal artist has grown and his success as a portrait artist has flourished. He is now an acknowledged expert and teacher to other artists running a series of highly acclaimed tuition workshops for animal art specialists.
As well as exhibitions in the UK, he has also exhibited in Africa, Singapore, mainland Europe and the USA, where his first solo show sold out on the opening night. Sotheby's, Christie’s and Bonham’s have all sold his paintings for record prices. Paul also has over 60 fine art prints to his credit and his originals are keenly sought after by collectors around the globe.
Supporting wildlife conservation has always been of paramount importance to him and sales of his work have helped raise thousands of pounds for various charities - including Tuskforce, The Born Free Foundation, The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation and The Injured Jockey's Fund to name but a few.
Paul's aim, quite simply, is to paint the best images possible and raise funds for wildlife conservation. Dogs are a walk in the park compared to Lions and Tigers and he depicts them with masterly skill. Paul is available to undertake portrait commissions.
