artist at work, painting an elephant, Caroline Skinner Art

You’re concerned about wildlife conservation and animal welfare issues, and worry that we’re running out of time. You’d like to own some unique animal art and also support some excellent animal charities at no extra cost to you – I can help with that!


Caroline Skinner Self-PortraitI am currently working on wild animal paintings from observations at conservation parks, trying to convey something of their nature and vulnerability in my work. Your purchase of my wildlife artwork for your home helps to protect wildlife by supporting excellent conservation projects  – for all sales of prints and original paintings, I donate 10% of the price you pay to the International Fund for Animal Welfare. 


If you would like an original pet panimal artist, sheep painting, Caroline Skinnerainting commission please get in touch to discuss how I can help – unlike some artists who paint purely from photos, I like to meet the animals wherever possible to take my own photos and get some idea of their character, and the owner’s expectations. If this isn’t possible, I can ask you about your pet and give advice on the sort of photos I need. I also donate 10% of the purchase price to the RSPCA so that animals who are not fortunate enough to have caring owners can get a second chance.

I have been drawing and painting for many years in various media, most recently using mainly acrylics and water-based oils, covering a wide range of subjects. Some of my paintings are found in private collections in the UK, Europe and the USA. I am a member of the Surrey Artists’ Open Studios, and I exhibit throughout the year – see here for current details.

Original paintings, prints and greeting cards are available at my exhibitions, or through my various online outlets, including this website.

Please get in touch if there is a particular animal you would like me to paint!
