Roy Aplin - Wildlife Artist
From Down to Feather
I am a Wildlife Artist, specialising in Birds of the World. Swanage born and bred. Always been interested in the countryside and painted from a very early age. Aviculture has been my hobby since the age of 8 and given me the opportunity to study birds closely and be able to visit private collections.
My paintings are finely detailed in Watercolour/Gouache but I also work in Acrylic, Oils and Pencil. My artwork has been used for book illustrations, calendars and donated to various charities for fundraising. In 2018 I donated an framed original Watercolour painting in aid of the Swanage Bandstand Appeal.
I exhibit my work each year at: Purbeck Art Weeks, Dorset Art Weeks, The Wildlife Art Society International (Nature in Art, Gloucester) British Birdwatching Fair, Southern Art Exhibition etc.
I'm also a member of the Dorset Coppice Group.
