About the Author

Vic Bearcroft is a professional, self-taught artists who's work focuses on wildlife and pet portraits. He specialising in pastel on velour, but also works in acrylic, watercolour, charcoal, pencil and coloured pencil. He has been drawing animals ever since he could hold a pencil, and spending part of his childhood in Kenya meant that there was no lack of inspiration! Passionate about wildlife in general, Vic works with a large number of animal welfare and conservation organisations worldwide, donating prints, merchandise and funds. He says: "While I consider myself to be a wildlife artist, I prefer to paint close-up intimate portraits of animals as individuals, rather than in landscape settings. My aim is to capture not only the likeness of the subject in my painting, but also the life and soul in its eyes."
