ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Clare Parkes is a wildlife and pet portrait artist based in Hertfordshire, England who works predominantly in pastels. Graduating in 2008 with a degree in Fine Art, Clare went on to work at Madame Tussauds as a wax figure painter, and it was whilst working there that she discovered a love of realism and detail. Clare has always had a passion for wildlife and art and loves being able to capture the little individual quirks and personality of each animal, drawing your eye in to characteristics which might sometimes be overlooked.

#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.

DELIVERY INFORMATION: This piece will be posted to buyers after conclusion of the exhibition on 16 September 2023. UK delivery costs are included in the price. International postage may incur additional costs that will be confirmed after purchase.

CONSERVATION CONTRIBUTION: 100% of the proceeds from this sale will support the charitable work of David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) and our ground-based conservation partners across Africa and Asia.
