Biography profile for Kay Middleton
Following a career in licensing and a huge shift in her personal outlook, Kay came to specialise in wildlife art in late 2017, beginning with a basic website and a desire to paint animals and nature.
With no business plan or direction, but with a lifelong love of animals, her goals were simply to seek the images which she most connected with and hone her skills. Over the following months and year, for this was how long it took to study and consider that which moved her, drew her in and most resonate with, her style and subject matter gradually evolved, from "everything and anything", to finding her place in wildlife, through highly detailed realism
With a strong leaning towards the big cats and young animals, emotion plays a big part in her art, alongwith a desire to help animal causes and awareness of their many plights thorugh her work, which she executes in pencil and pastel.
Kay lives in the UK, in a very small village with thatched roof cottages, and many cows, chickens, horses, squirrels and an ocassional deer, and is looking forward to working with Artists For Conservation.
Offering as many options as possible, I donate a percentage of many of my print sales to various wildlife and animal organisations.
Ocassionally I am also able to donate original artworks to auctions and fundraising projects to further aid our beautiful but vulnerable wildlife.
