Item Description

Acrylic and Charcoal, 8 x 10 inches

Artist: Matt Patterson NH

(from the Artist's website) There's almost no distance I won't go, almost nothing I won't do, to learn all I can about my subjects to make my paintings of wild animals as accurate and lifelike as possible.

In both 2017 and 2018 I received the Roger Tory Peterson Wild American Art Award. My work has been featured in Yankee Magazine, Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine and other publications. I also have exhibited in many fine art galleries, and my paintings hang in the permanent collection of museums. Recently I worked with Orvis to create exclusive trout prints. When I'm not painting, I still spend my free time looking for turtles and snakes, fishing, and kayaking.

 I feel it's crucial not just to document these marvelous species I paint; it's even more important to me to have a hand in saving them from extinction. Among reptiles alone, 196 species are presently critically endangered. That's why I'm a signature member of Artists for Conservation. That's why I often create artwork specifically to donate proceeds from its sale for conservation--as I recently did for the radiated tortoises I met in Madagascar. I'm grateful to use my talent to not only raise awareness about these gorgeous animals, but help keep them alive on the planet we human newcomers are lucky to share with them.
