Eric Wilson has established himself as one of Britain's leading wildlife artists, a multi-award winner whose paintings are now widely collected throughout the world.
His artistic ability was evident from his earliest schooldays; "Eric has an artistic talent way beyond his years" wrote his art teacher in 1967.
As a child of Scottish parentage, Eric would spend his formative years roaming the highland mountains of Scotland where his lifelong love of wild places was born. It was natural and inevitable that Eric would combine his talent with his love of wildlife and become a wildlife artist.
Eric has exhibited widely in London, Germany and the United States, exhibiting at the prestigious Florida Wildlife and Western Art Exposition and The National Exhibition of Wildlife Art where his work has been awarded. His paintings have appeared in magazines and books such as "The Best of Wildlife Art" and "Keys to Painting Fur and Feathers", by North Light Books.
He has done commissioned work for companies such as the Bradford Exchange and has had his work published as fine art prints. Original paintings are auctioned by Christies in London and sold through private commission.
Accuracy & attention to detail are hallmarks of Eric's work, his adventurous research trips take him to some of the remotest wilderness areas on the planet. In Rwanda and Zaire he has sat face to face with mountain Gorillas, he has been charged by black rhino whilst on foot in Zimbabwe, camped out on the Serengeti plains, canoed the Zambezi and Lake Kariba, tracked tigers on elephant back in the jungles of the Royal Chitwan National Park in Nepal. Seen grizzly bears up close in the Canadian Rockies, swam with Killer Whales off the coast of Vancouver Island and spent literally years exploring the remote Glens of the Scottish Highlands.
