Thank you visiting my page!
I am a portrait artist but I also love to create more abstract pieces within the theme of wildlife and cultural heritage. I hope you enjoy looking at the pieces as much as I enjoy creating them!
Hello and welcome to my page! My name is Davina Bosanquet (b.1981) I am a visual artist with a passion for wildlife and culture. I have held several solo exhibitions in support of conservation projects in Gabon, Namibia and Brazil.
And have been lucky enough to have been shortlisted seven times at the Wildlife Artist of the Year, and won my category twice.
I am also interested in the theme of cultural identity and have exhibited widely in galleries, fairs and competitions across the UK and internationally.
I studied portraiture in London and attended art school in Edinburgh and Bournemouth. I have lived and worked in Dorset, Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town and London. While living in Cape Town I worked in various townships helping to teach local artists and was involved in setting up an exhibition space in Ikhaya la Langa.

Prices for portraits start from £350 for a small pencil drawing, £600 for a pastel and £800 for an oil. The price depends 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!
