Tony Forrest Wildlife Art
This website is a showcase for my work. If you are interested in viewing my originals or require any further information please contact my agents, DeMontfort Fine Art. The wildlife gallery on this site shows a selection of my favourite paintings inspired by Africa and India. You can contact me direct if you require further information. Thank you.
My main speciality is producing oil paintings of the natural world. The world's wildlife serve as a true reminder of how wonderful but also how fragile our planet is. We owe it to our children to look after it. We do not own it, but are custodians for future generations. I hope that my paintings serve as a reminder that the wildlife with which we share this planet is in danger of being lost for ever unless we all appreciate it take positive steps to conserve it.
MARINE ART WEBSITE
Living in Cornwall has inspired my marine art. I love painting the Cornish landscape and harbours. This marine website is entirely separate from my wildlife art. Please contact me direct to discuss anything regarding my marine subjects. There will be a major exhibition in St.Ives in August at the Salthouse Gallery.
TRIBUTE TO DAVID SHEPHERD
I have just heard the sad news that we have lost a shining light in the wildlife art and conservation world. My hero and life-time inspiration died today from Parkinson's Disease. David Shepherd is the only reason I have painted wildlife for the past 30 years. I discovered his work whilst at college when I was about 18 years old and he has been a massive inspiration to me ever since. David was a true conservationist who really cared about wildlife and especially his beloved "Jumbos". I am very saddened by his passing and my heart goes out to his family. A real hero who did so much for our precious natural world. David will live on in my memories and I thank him for doing everything he did for wildlife.
