Francisco José Hernández

Francisco José Hernández Fernández is a self taught artist based in Spain. He began his career as wildlife illustrator. For almost ten years he managed to combine illustration and wildlife painting with his professional duties as a biologist specializing in the study and conservation of large Iberian birds of prey. Many years of fieldwork have made him great knowledgeable about birds, the subject of most of his work. He often paints outdoors, drawing real specimens, and he has produced hundreds of sketches in his determination to capture the very soul of birds, their essence, volumes and movement, together with their habitat and its light effects.
He has travelled widely with his paintbrushes, to Ireland, Scotland, Finland, Mauritania, Namibia and the Pyrenees, to see and paint different landscapes and their bird life.
He now devotes all his time to illustration and wildlife painting, his aim being to convey all the diversity and beauty of wildlife in his works.
He is a member of the Spanish Wildlife Artists Society, and he has exhibited his work in Spain, Holland, France, Finland and England.

His original paintings are hung in private collections of Spain, England, France, Holland and Chile.
