“Just as a portrait artist, any animal painted in the realism genre deserves to be accurately portrayed. As an artist, know your subject and try your best to represent it as beautifully as nature does”.
Brett, the Artist
Since childhood, observing the natural world and the everyday lives of animals and birds has forged a course forward that I'll never return from. The emotion of being so immersed in nature and having developed a self-taught skill that records my ideas and imagination is in itself, a chance to be a voice for nature.
The Bay of Whales Gallery has been a revelation, not only for the region of the southwest coast where I honed my skills as a naturalist but the venue marks a place where I can express just how special, unique and beautiful the wildlife of the area truly is.
