Ruth Goodman Contemporary animal artist Ruth GoodmanContemporary animal artist

Looking for a contemporary animal artist to paint you a commission or to purchase an animal painting for your home or office? Then look no further .............

Ever since I was a small child I have been fascinated by animals for their beauty, feel, shape, size and texture. Animals bring a certain presence to a place or situation and you can't help but admire them.


I hope that my work brings that same intrigue and presence by its scale and attention to detail. I create paintings that are often larger than life and have an impact when hung in a room.


I firmly believe that the eyes are crucial to drawing in the observer, yet also give a sense of calm and peace to my paintings.


Acrylic paint is my prime medium as it is fast drying, quickly enabling layering of paint, creation of texture and use of vibrant colours and a quicker lead time.


I hope that you like my work and that you'll take the opportunity to visit my online gallery.


Looking for a great piece of art for your home or office? You'll find an overview of my current items under works, or you can contact me directly. I look forward to talking to you!
