Barbara Bird

Barbara BirdI have always loved to paint and draw but it is only relatively recently that I have been able to devote more time to art.

I joined the Society of Feline Artists whilst living in Buckinghamshire and since moving to Devon I have become a member of two local art societies.

I exhibit annually in London and more often in galleries in Devon and I am fortunate to sell my work quite regularly.

My subject matter is varied ranging from landscape through flowers to wildlife, but my greatest passion is for cats from the much loved "moggies" to their magnificent wild cousins, the "big cats".

My preferred medium has always been pastel and it was not until a friend wondered why I had not tried coloured pencil, that I decided to experiment.

My first attempts were fit only for the bin, but I decided to persevere!
