Nick Derry SWLA

Half birdwatcher and half artist, Nick divides his time between sketching wildlife in the field and playing with those memories and images at home on the dining room table that serves as the studio. His approach to picture making is neither sacred nor pure, and all media and approaches are welcome in order to make a finished image. Watercolour, acrylic, ink, crayons and collage all compete on the paper.

Passionate about wildlife art since childhood, Nick took his first sketchbook out into the field when he was 13 years old in order to record his first Bittern. Since then, he has learned to draw and paint a bit better (most of the time), won a good few awards, assisted in illustrating several publications, become a member of the SWLA and sketched more than one Jack Snipe.

 He hopes that his work conveys the excitement of the natural world and may encourage others to explore its beauty and express their own reactions to it.
