Birding Art | Ian Longhurst
Thursday 31 March to Wednesday 6 April
Quay Gallery, Snape Maltings
A local Suffolk/Essex artist who enjoys the variety of wildlife in our beautiful part of the world.
I am a Suffolk born artist, currently living and working in Essex. I enjoy painting birds, I’ve spent a lifetime studying them in captivity and in the wild. I often try to recreate a memory, trying to put the emotions of that into my work, also I love the effects that light and rain or ice have. I often use manmade objects to create extra interest, whether that be wire fencing or rusted metal, and using objects that can be found and identified locally. Please have a look at my website www.ianlonghurst.co.uk to see the variety of my work.
