David Feather was born in 1952 in Yorkshire, England. He graduated from Newcastle University in 1976 with a degree in agriculture, and subsequently worked in the vetinary field for six years prior to becoming a full time wildlife artist. He now lives on an idyllic small farm where he can observe his subjects close at hand. Each brushstroke of his paintings is backed by years of careful observation, distilling the very essence of the wild and presenting a kaleidescope of living beauty , caught for the moment, but ready in an instant to retreat into the misty background. His work has gained him a well deserved reputation , much of his work has been reproduced and is available as limited edition prints, collectors plates and greeting cards.
