Andy works with two distinct approaches to subject matter. The first one involves painting an opportunistic wildlife encounter... a fleeting scene, usually full of vitality and movement. Having experienced these 'magic moments' himself out in the field, he then relies on wildlife photographers who have captured something similar on film, to assist with the detail.
The second approach is to paint a focused portrait or 'study', an eye-to-eye connection with the subject. The artwork is firmly about the subject matter, not distracted by styles, interpretation or opinions. "I don't presume to mess around with it... just try to do justice to the way nature intended. Sometimes I just paint the subject larger than life."
Garry is a self taught artist working almost exclusively in graphite. He has always been passionate about preserving Australian flora and fauna and representing it in photorealistic drawings is just another part of that passion. Working from reference photographs and life these drawings can take him many hours to complete.
