About The Artist

Fred paints what is around him; that is still-lives of the jugs, bottles, fruit and such in the house, or flowers from the garden. For him, the best way to capture the nature of these things is to employ the expressive possibilities provided by oil painting.

Fred is also attracted to accuracy and detail which can often be achieved through drawing, so working in charcoal or pastel pencils is also important for him.

A concern for understanding the inner workings of things has always motivated Fred and this was evident in his studies. Gaining a B.Sc in Physics took him into the Aerospace industry and then looking for more insight, a Ph.D in Engineering took him into computing. On retirement, Fred wanted to take these concerns into the area of artistic activities and he realised that realistic painting in the traditional “atelier” manner would satisfy him best. This traditional approach to art allows a wide range of expression with great concerns for form,colour and tone.

Fred gained experience in painting and drawing by attendance on courses at various specialist Art Schools. These studies also created a fascination with both portraiture and figure-drawing, which he has maintained.

About The Artist

Catherine Ingleby is one of the foremost sporting artists in the UK, annually represented in exhibitions worldwide, with works in many notable private collections, including that of HM the Queen, and several prominent racing stables.

Catherine is consistently picked to show in prestigious juried exhibitions, and is proud to be a partner artist to the David Shepherd Wildlife Trust. She is passionate about wildlife conservation, regularly donating artworks to help raise funds.

Catherine spent several years training as an artist in Paris and Florence accumulating a solid basis of draughtsmanship on which to base her now instantly recognisable style of dramatic light and movement. She now works full time in her studio in Berkshire, with a plethora of pets that both aid and abet her. She is known for her contemporary take on traditional subjects, and her ability to capture the fleeting sense of movement in her work.

Catherine undertakes a limited amount of commissions a year; some are formal portraits, others, action paintings of sports horses or dogs and recently a few of people!

Please contact her directly to discuss the commission process.

Artist’s Statement

I love to paint animals, always have, and feel very privileged that I now make my living from doing so. In my current phase of work, I aim to explore the movement of animals and develop a distinctive use of colour and brushwork.

There is a very simple joy in the observation of animals, in their uncomplicated joy of small things, or their unconscious beauty. I aim to explore this in my work, from the light-hearted pieces of jumping dogs to the more traditional works portraying the majesty of the big cats.

I try in my art, to lift the viewer’s heart a little, and I hope to make work that is accessible to all and to bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary. I am obsessed with colour in my work, echoing the colours and patterns of the animal I have chosen to paint in bolder combinations in the background. I find the intensity of patch of pure pigment, cadmium orange next to deep purple in a tiger’s coat, for example, is far more interesting than a faithfully lifelike representation of colour.
