Kent artist Paul Apps is a passionate wildlife artist and photographer. Through exploring the rural Kent countryside, Paul developed a love of the landscape and wildlife. With no formal art training, painting was initially a hobby, but increasing demand initiated the progression to professional artist in 1987. Ever since, Paul's success and reputation as a wildlife, portrait and equestrian artist has flourished. As well as exhibitions in the UK, artworks have been displayed in Africa, Singapore, Europe and the USA, where his first solo show sold out on the opening night. Sotheby's, Christies and Bonhams have all seen images sell for record prices. With over sixty fine art prints to his credit, originals are also keenly sought after by collectors around the globe. Paul has taught art techniques for many years, and has contributed to several tuition magazines. Supporting wildlife conservation has always been of paramount importance to Paul and sales of his work have helped raise thousands of pounds for various charities.
