Ben Waddams

Ben is a British wildlife artist living and working in Shropshire. Originally from Buckinghamshire, South East England, Ben has lived in the States for many years on several different occasions and travelled in search of exotic wildlife across Central America and Africa.

He paints simple studies with subtle hints to the habitat and environment. He enjoys the details of the natural world but is not a realist. His paintings are painted to give the impression and illusion of detail, without actually painting the detail itself. In other words they aim to be faithful to natural history whilst maintaining a style and an artistic integrity.
