My name is Agnieszka (Aga) Elliott, and I am a nationally and internationally recognized wildlife artist. I draw inspiration from artists like Robert Bateman and Carl Brenders, who not only are naturalists, but who successfully capture wildlife, and their natural environments, through realism. I strongly believe that wildlife art has the potential to inspire viewers to conversation and education, inevitably leading to increased awareness of our planet’s natural heritage. Working exclusively in oils, I aim to portray animals in their moments of beauty. My goal is to capture their delight of simply being and the essence of their movement, emotion, passion, vulnerability, and majesty, and every one of my pieces has a story that is emotive and emotional. I choose to work with Invicta Wildlife Fund because it is a grass-roots organization that shares my passion for the protection and conservation of key African wildlife species.
