About Darren

Darren grew up in the British countryside – where buzzards circle the skies, hares bounce through the fields, and the sound of birdsong can always be heard! It was impossible not to fall in love with nature, and his passion for wildlife and the environment sits firmly at the heart of his paintings.

His approach to watercolours is striking and contemporary, using splashes of colour and movement to bring the unique personality of each animal to the page. His paintings are captivating celebrations of the creatures he (and we all!) love the most – and whilst his greatest inspiration comes from British wildlife, the characters in his collection join us from across the globe. 

Darren now lives on the South Coast of England, where he’s discovering a new wave of inspiration in the aquatic world!
