Lisa Ann Watkins BA(Hons)

Website Facebook

Graduating in design back in the early nineties Lisa now combines her passion for creating art with her love for animals. She uses her art to raise awareness & funds for animal conservation groups & charities across the globe. She is an invited Artist Partner to the Snow Leopard Trust & has worked with Animals Asia, Wildlife SOS & Free The Bears to name just a few. Lisa's specialist area is pet portraiture & wildlife artwork but what sets her apart from many other animal artists is her desire to capture the character & not just the likeness. She works very closely with her clients so that she can make as close a connection as possible to her subjects.

Lisa is currently a member of
TWASI (The Wildlife Art Society International) – 3rd in the People’s Choice 2016
UKCPS (UK Coloured Pencil Society) – Awarded Reserve Best in Show 2016 Annual Open Exhibition

Lisa has been published many times over the last few years & her work has been licensed to appear in some of the leading UK stores aswell as cross stitch patterns & her own range of merchandise.

Lisa is available for both private tuition & also to teach workshops. She has produced downloadable step by step tutorials as well as now organising her own workshops all over the UK.
