Rory Carr, working in Painting, Mixed-media

From an early age Rory Carr 28, has been fascinated by wildlife, particularly birds and insects. It is perhaps unsurprising then that the natural world has become a major influence and source of inspiration for this up-and-coming artist. Rory Works primarily in watercolour, but prepares his work by first drawing the subject using pencil. Once painted, he adds extra definition and emphasizes areas of texture using ink which serves to strengthen the composition. This multi-disciplinary approach, combining drawing skills with wash techniques, Rory has developed while working towards his A-level in Fine Art at Kelly College. During his school years he studied the famous wartime artist John Piper and Robin Armstrong, a local well-established wildlife artist who also works mainly in watercolour. As well as working towards a career as an artist, Rory is strongly motivated by wildlife conservation efforts and has trained as an ecologist, having graduated from the University of Reading with a Master's degree in Species Identification and Survey Skills. Rory hopes that his work will help to reconnect people with nature by encouraging an awareness and respect for the countryside and its wildlife.
