Natalie Mascall is one of the S.O.F.A. artists taking part.
I am a self-taught, professional, award winning wildlife artist with a huge passion for wildlife and helping to preserve them. Wildlife is what inspires me.
Even from an early age I wanted to help animals as I was looking to be a vet, so for me, its quite a special thing that I now have the opportunity to give back to what has and continues to give me, through my art.
2001 is when my journey as a professional artist begun specialising in Wildlife/Animal Fine Art, taking on commissions such as any wildlife/animals, nature and pet portraits. I have always loved drawing eyes, they intrigue me as are so fascinating and expressive, speaking volumes without words, windows to the soul.
I am inspired and driven to draw from my love and passion for wildlife, nature, animals and the outdoors. I couldn’t live without wildlife and birdlife as it is what has made me me. I believe that us artists drawing wildlife have a duty to raise awareness in any way that we can. I have had the privilege in seeing various species in the wild which always captivates me and inspires me even more.
I love Africa but one place in which captivated me in the same way as Africa did, was Nepal, a prize I won from winning the overall competition title ‘BBC Wildlife Artist of the year 2010’ with ‘Tigers at Play’, an incredible experience, including night safari’s where we were so lucky to encounter a fishing cat and jungle cat. The Nepalese people were so welcoming and educational bringing us into their culture. Very memorable.
I have been lucky to have been featured in several magazines including Artists & Illustrators, Your cat, BBC Wildlife and Wildlife art.
I have had the privilege in having my artwork published in a couple books; Cats in Art by Desmond Morris and Doggeral by Angela Patmore. One will notice my love of cats, worldly felines from the big cats, wild cats and our beloved domestic. Many of my artworks has featured my own black panthers also including visitors to my garden as well as my friends beloved felines.
I also feature a lot of endangered species including the Geoffroy’s cat, serval, caracal, rusty spotted wild cat, asian golden cats, tigers, snow leopard to the sleek like velvet black jaguar! To name a few!
My love of any feline has definitely been dominant in my artworks and print collection. So I was delighted when I was accepted as a full member of The Society of Feline Artists which enables one to include the initials after my name.
I work in various mediums but specialise in Pastel and Charcoal due to the beautiful colours available and the softness one can achieve from the lovely mediums in which I taught myself to use. I welcome any commissions and enjoy capturing your beloved animals and pride myself on doing so.
