About : Desiree Hart - Artist and Photographer based in Worthing, West Sussex


Hi, my name is Desiree Hart.  

I have always had a passion for painting and photographing wildlife with a special love of Birds.

Reference material is gathered on location through sketching and photography.

  Many visits to Africa has given me a wonderful collection of Big

Game images to work with.   Our British wildlife is also a continuous source of inspiration.  Being a member of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust enables me to spend much of my spare time sketching at the Arundel Centre.  I am a fundraiser for the trust and have been Artist in Residence.  What a great way to give something back and help such a worthy cause.  I have always admired the artwork of the founder, Sir Peter Scott.

My work is collected as far as Australia and I'm delighted to have won many awards, including 5 times selected for the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the year and exhibited at London's Mall Gallery.

I exhibit at Country Shows and Fairs - Art society exhibitions and The Montague Gallery in Worthing.  Exhibitions at Colonnade House in Worthing allows me to show my work ‘straight from the easel’  When I exhibit at country shows I always demonstrate and happy to talk about my work and inspirations. 

I paint in Oil - Acrylic - Pastel - Watercolour and Graphite. 

As well as painting in a traditional style many of my watercolours and photographs have a more contemporary feel to more modern surroundings.
