Painting by Desiree Hart



Desiree Hart is a painter who specialises in Wildlife Art. Like many artists her passion for painting wildlife started at an early age, and her enjoyment of the beautiful Kent countryside and her love of horses stayed with her into her adult life. Desiree’s lifetime studying animals has given her an understanding of the importance of keeping our wildlife habitat protected for their survival and wellbeing. While on location she gathers reference material through sketches and photography, and is most often inspired by many visits to Africa as well as the English countryside. Desiree works in oil paint, acrylic, pastel, watercolour and graphite and enjoys Chinese brush painting.

Desiree now lives in West Sussex. Being a member of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust enables her to spend much of her spare time sketching at the Arundel Wetlands Centre. Some years ago she had the opportunity to become a fundraiser and artist in residence for the trust, which enabled her to contribute to a cause close to her work and passions. She has also always admired the artwork of the founder, Sir Peter Scott. Desiree exhibits at the Arundel Wetlands Centre, as well as country shows and fairs and art society exhibitions across the county. This year she took part in the Sketch for Survival’ campaign to raise funds for conservation work across Africa. The exhibition went on tour across the UK, including Gallery @OXO on London’s South Bank as well as three days in New York.

Desiree hopes her exhibition will inspire visitors to take up the art of painting and drawing but most of all to be encouraged to keep our amazing wildlife safe so future generations can enjoy their magnificence and beauty. During the exhibition she will be painting in the gallery and invites you to come in and chat, or contact her for commissions.
