An exhibition of wildlife paintings, photography, and films celebrating Britain's natural heritage. Artist Robert E Fuller applies a fine, detailed brush to demonstrate the value of our wild treasures.

See paintings, photographs and short films at this exquisite art and photography exhibition celebrating the very best of British wildlife. Artist Robert E Fuller is one of Britain's foremost. He uses fine brushstrokes to create exquisite, detailed works of art that extol the beauty of commonplace creatures like owls, foxes, hares, kestrels, stoats and squirrels.

"People travel abroad to watch wildlife and yet we have stunning animals right here in Britain," says Robert. "This exhibition celebrates the very best of our wildlife. I hope by giving my favourite wild creatures a place in the spotlight this will encourage people to treasure them."

Robert, who paints mainly in oils and acrylics, goes to extraordinary lengths to study animals in their natural habitat. Among the animals featured in his new collection is a red squirrel scampering across a tree branch, a badger cubs tumbling along beside their mother, and a robin perched amidst glistening hawthorn berries.
Visitors to the event will be encouraged to choose their favourite. A shortlist of 25 will be 'Crowned for Christmas' and remain on show until Christmas Day.

Known for the depth of study that goes in to his highly detailed paintings, Robert Fuller is also widely recognised in scientific circles for his groundbreaking discoveries on animal behaviour.

He regularly appears on TV, including BBC Springwatch and BBC Countryfile and his stoat studies are due to feature in a new BBC documentary by BBC Natural World. A regular contributor to newspapers and magazines, his latest studies of stoats featured in BBC Wildlife Magazine.
