I create realistic art for a living...

because I like the challenge of it. In trying to do a subject justice as it stands, it’s very fulfilling when I get it right.

I’m very lucky to be able to walk in rural surroundings almost daily. I make sure I’m armed with a camera to snap any wildlife or livestock when I can’t help but stop and look. However, most of the images I use were taken by professional photographers.

I might alter the odd thing in an artistic rendition, but it’ll be subtle, and rare (if ever). The real and natural world is immensely interesting to me already, so I leave imagined alternatives to those more skilled in and appreciative of them.

Nature covers a gamut of size, colour, personality and beauty I find should be worthy of anyone’s attention.  It’s also constantly changing, largely for the worse, which is why 10% of all my wildlife sale profits go to selected wildlife charities.

I’ve been influenced by several others, including Paul Cadden, Charlotte Vovan, Dylan Eakin, Cath Riley, J.D. Hillberry, Clare Parkes and Kelvin Okafor.

A peek into the drawing process

My name is Alex Fleming (b. 1985), a pet portrait and wildlife multimedia artist, based in Lancashire, UK.  My only qualification is a GCSE in Art & Design. After a few years off, I began painting in acrylic and drawing in graphite for fun in my free time in 2007. I have a mathematician’s high attention to detail and desire to be thorough, however long a task takes. Graphite pencil compliments these qualities more readily than acrylic paint, and quickly became a very potent medium for me.
