TITLE: Horse Chestnut

MEDIUM: Woodcut

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Creating a window into forests and woodlands, Tilia Holmes celebrates the importance of trees and highlights their beauty by capturing the play of dappled light on leaves and branches using the ancient art form of pyrography. Using natural edged, sustainably sourced timber as a canvas, her process starts with an illustration burnt onto wood, where she creates tones and marks using different levels of heat, and then brings the piece alive with oil paint. Tilia is a UK based artist and has exhibited her artwork across the country, she is represented by Dansel Gallery, which specialise in quality contemporary woodwork.

#SKETCHFORWILDLIFE: Each year, the talented artists who take part in DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year are invited to participate in #SketchForWildlife. These small postcard sized original artworks give everyone a chance to own a totally unique piece of work, by a highly sought-after collection of artists.

The postcards have always been extremely popular and we hope you will support this initiative. The subject and medium of the postcard has been left entirely up to the artist, just being their own celebration of the natural world.
