Diane Young Animal Artist
“Hiding in my attic studio creating animal characters with lots of life and mischief and storytelling along with pet portraits”
Chances are you have arrived here because you love animals! On my site you will find fun character animals up to all sorts of antics and more realistic animals along with pet portrait paintings. I am inspired by nature and love to create animal characters with a hint of humour, and a story to tell. Harvey the Aardvark is a character I created some years ago and has been posted around the world in the form of ACEOs. Storytelling is key to my work, with hints at a narrative and animals featured poems and folklore. Look for the luxurious addition gold leaf which is a favourite embellishment of mine and gives a picture an individual look. That extra special commission is just an email enquiry away
My interest in conveying more than just an image evolved from my training at UWE Bristol. Whilst studying for a BA Degree in Illustration I was very happy to have won a Highly Commended Award for the Macmillan Book Prize for Illustration in 2005.
Harvey the Aardvark has been featured in small collectable artworks called ACEOs which have been sold to ACEO collectors in many countries world wide. You will find Harvey the Aardvark on facebook too!
