Biography

Vic Bearcroft is a self-taught professional wildlife and pet portrait artist, who works in a pastel, pencil, watercolour, ink, coloured pencil, charcoal and acrylic media. Having spent part of his childhood in Kenya, Vic has been drawing animals since he could hold a pencil. Being passionate about wildlife in general, Vic works with a large number of animal welfare and conservation organisations worldwide, donating prints, merchandise and funds. He says: "While I consider myself to be a wildlife artist, I prefer to paint close-up intimate portraits of animals as individuals, rather than in landscape settings. My aim is to capture not only the likeness of the subject in my painting, but also the life and soul in its eyes."
