Alice Arnold is a rapidly becoming a much sort after artist who specialises in commissions for dogs, horses, hounds, stags and chickens. Her unique and original style has seen the demand for her work grow rapidly, the Countryside Alliance is privileged to be able to support her.
Born in Derbyshire, Alice Arnold has always had a passion for drawing and painting wildlife and farm animals. After a degree at Harper Adams Agricultural College, during which time she continued to paint animal portraits, she moved to Herefordshire.
Alice now specialises in drawing and painting the animals and wildlife found in this beautiful county. "I love studying animals in different lights, and seeing how the textures of feather or fur respond" she says, "it is a real fascination for me and I enjoy being creative in my approach!"
She has a personal understanding of the relationship between animals and humans and this is clear in her work where she focuses on painting and drawing farm animals, horses and dogs.
Alice uses pen and ink and soft pastel as well as acrylic on canvas for her larger work.
Alice's striking brightly coloured canvases display a lively approach and technique. Bold animated images, dramatically conceived give her work a sense of energy and excitement.
