ARTWORK DESCRIPTION: Penel Kirk’s sepia-toned mixed media piece was inspired by the plight of these highly trafficked, exquisite and endangered creatures. In her painting Penel has depicted the pangolin going about his business with no threat to anyone or anything. Penel chose to paint the pangolin on a simple background so as not to detract from the beauty and complexity of the scales and delicate face.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Penel Kirk studied fashion and textile design at St Martin’s School of Art in the 1980’s and worked as a textile designer until 2000 when she started working as a fine artist alongside her commercial work. Based in her Cotswold studios, Penel works in acrylic, watercolour pencil, liquid graphite and gouache to create her mixed media animal portraits. As a wildlife artist Penel feels passionately that her work can help to highlight the plight of the thousands of endangered species and, through donations from sales of the artwork, she can help support the vital conservation work of DSWF.
