Paul Stratton, Ashburton Member Since November 2012 Artist Statement Hi there,
I'm an artist living in Ashburton, Devon, England. My interests are nature, wildlife and fantasy as well as role-playing and war-gaming. Aside to the art I also make and sell model scenery so I 've always got something creative on the go.
My favorite subjects are birds of prey, otters and cats, especially the Big Cats but I'm usually asked to do pet portraits of dogs. I don't really mind what I do as I just enjoy creating things. My influences are from Nature, films, Play Station games, role-playing and my own head though mostly it's a combination. I'm helped by Twiglet, my fat cat, who always makes sure I have adequate breaks by getting her snacks!
For my art I specialize in detailed pen and ink work using a technical pen and sometimes ink washes. I try to make them as realistic as possible and convey as much emotion as I can.
Thanks for having a look at my work and I hope you see something you like :)
