Marie Curran

I was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where I currently live and gained a degree in Design from the University of Ulster in 1994. Over the years I have done many private commissions of animals, buildings and other subject matter but in recent years have concentrated more on subjects I choose myself - mostly wildlife art and the natural world. I hope supporting Invicta wildlife fund will help to maintain this natural world and all the animals in it. Cats of all sizes are my particular interest, I have drawn all the big cat species and hope to continue doing lots of the many smaller species. I work mostly in dry media such as graphite, colour pencil and pastel, trying to observe and accurately capture the subject matter. One important aspect of my work is that the artwork I produce should be lightfast and permanent and as a result all the materials I use are of high, archival quality.
