The image Alex Fleming used for his piece (from photographer Rick Beldegreen) is a celebration of one of Earth’s key habitats. Alex wanted to accent the iridescent, vibrant colours of the green sea turtle and its home, and the mesmerising play of light throughout the space.


Alex Fleming creates realistic art because he enjoys the challenge of it, and finds it very fulfilling to succeed in doing a subject justice as it stands. Alex might alter the odd thing in an artistic rendition, but it is always subtle, and rare. The real, natural world is immensely interesting to him already, so he leaves imagined alternatives to those more appreciative of them. Nature covers a gamut of size, colour, personality and beauty, which Alex feels should be worthy of anyone’s attention. It is also constantly changing, largely for the worse, so he choses to donate a portion of all of his wildlife sales to animal charities.
