About Davina



Hi and welcome to my website!  I have been working as a portrait and wildlife painter since leaving Art College in 2005.  I have exhibited widely in galleries, fairs and competitions across the UK and internationally.


Growing up on old farms in the countryside in the South of England, I was surrounded by an array of animals and after travelling to Kenya, started to have a keen interest in wildlife and conservation.  My first solo show was in support of a gorilla orphanage in Gabon, where I spent 6 incredible weeks.


I have just moved back to London after living in beautiful Cape Town for 5 years, during which I started to experiment with mixed media.

Please contact me for prices, these depend on the size and content of the portrait.  I can either come and take the photos myself, paint from a photo you already have or I can send you a detailed outline on how to take the photos yourself.  


I look forward to hearing from you :)
