Just added myself to Andy Rouse’s wildlife photography fan site on Facebook. I’m fan #1120. I’m still trying to reach twenty fans on my site. Help me out folks! (Type “Jackie Garner, Wildlife Art” in to the search box on Facebook and you’ll find me.)
I first met Andy in the Falklands and he very kindly took some publicity photos for me when we were on Saunders Island (venue of the inspiration for my painting Heading Home). Check out his website www.andyrouse.co.uk for some absolutely stunning images.
I’m amazed Andy has yet to win Wildlife Photographer of the Year – though he’s come close many times – just shows how incredibly high the standard is. Head along to Nature in Art www.nature-in-art.org.uk before the end of February and see for yourselves. I’ll be there as Artist in Residence on the following dates: 3, 8-10, 13 & 14 February. Hope to see you there.
