Vivien Walters is a professional artist specialising in animals in oils, pastels and mixed media. Based in North Devon, between the Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks many of her paintings feature local livestock as well as the otters which are native to the area. Animals have always been an important inspiration for Vivien’s work, especially her own cats and dogs. Vivien says, “To me otters have a lot in common with cats, another of my painting passions - they form lovely curving shapes and have masses of whiskers”.
Vivien regularly undertakes commissions for clients throughout the UK, Europe, the United States and Asia. Together with the more usual cats, dogs, horses and cows are slightly more exotic animals such as a wolf and a tame cheetah.
Vivien draws her inspiration from the effects of the light falling on her subjects, using twilight and moonlight to create mood and atmosphere and capturing the variations of colour in an animal’s coat as it glows in the sunlight. The results are stunning, unsentimental depictions of animals in their natural habitat.
