Clive Meredith

Hampshire-based Clive Meredith has been a professional artist since 1993.

Working in oils in a traditional representative style and also incorporating precious metal leaf into some of my more decorative pieces, developing my own unique approach to mixed media works. My goal in creating these pieces is to isolate the subject from its natural environment, presenting it instead in a contemporary style with a nod to age-old techniques and styles. Focusing on the beauty and complexity of feather form or butterfly wings against a highly decorative background of distressed precious metal leaf and colour.

With many years spent working exclusively for a well-known British publishing house, over 80 of my works have been released as limited edition prints and both prints and original artworks have been exhibited widely at annual events including the Royal windsor horse show, Badminton horse trials, EWA, New Forest and Hampshire county show and The London International Horse show, Windsor Contemporary art fair, Reading Art fair and the Affordable Art fair Battersea to name but a few.

Works have made regular appearances in the DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year competition at The Mall Galleries in London gaining a 'highly commended' award. I was also named Wildlife Artist of the Year 2010 by Wildscape magazine after winning the prestigious annual competition with the stunning drawing 'The Egret Pool'.

Work has been featured in many publications including Wildscape magazine, Hampshire Life, Solent Life magazine and Artist's and Illustrator's magazine.
