David Cemmick has been a full time wildlife artist since his first sell-out solo exhibition in 1974, at the age of nineteen. Over the past four decades he has travelled extensively, gathering field experience and documenting pioneering conservation work in some of the world's most remote habitats. He has painted ethno-medicinal plants in Madagascar's primary rain forests for David Bellamy's Conservation Foundation; illustrated two books focusing on the endangered Kakapo Parrot and Black Robin in New Zealand and studied coral and fish communities on Jamaica's Morant Cays coral atoll…whilst painting underwater. These, and many other field expeditions, both at home and abroad, have helped fuel David's deep respect and fascination for the animal world and given him the thirst to make 'art' from what he has seen in nature. His work as both a sculptor and a painter, is followed and collected worldwide.
Now living on the edge of the Lake District National Park, in the foothills of the Cumbrian fells of England, David is constantly inspired by the ever changing dramatic landscape and abundance of nature he sees every day.
