Tom Dudding

An accomplished wildlife artist based in County Durham. Tom has exhibited his work throughout the UK and Europe over the last 17 years. He travels extensively to find inspiration and reference to inform his work stating that “It is necessary to be sympathetic, to have an understanding and see how the animal behaves in its environment whether that be in an urban or natural setting. To paint the subject with conviction you must hear the sounds, smell the smells and see the colours that the animal sees, it must be throughout the seasons, regardless of weather or environment. Visiting the natural environment of the subject gives a deepening insight into the delicate balance of the natural world and the very real harm that mankind is continually doing to it.” Tom has overwhelming concerns about the natural species of the UK and Europe: our own backyard species that are endangered and at times overlooked.Artistic Statement
