I’m on track to complete all my Christmas orders (see below for latest off the easel) by mid-December when I plan to spend the holiday period creating more wildlife pieces to exhibit.

The two questions I am tussling with is where to exhibit my current pieces and sourcing more great wildlife images to work from to develop my portfolio.

I visited a local gallery last week and I’m still mulling over whether it’s the right venue for me.

I will search on but if anyone’s got any good advice or tips on finding good galleries and how to approach them I’d be very appreciative.

Similarly, if anyone knows of any wildlife photographers who are happy to release their images to professional artists (for payment) please let me know!
