Hilary Mayes,
Wildlife Artist



Hilary’s interest in wildlife and support of conservation has seen her travel far afield, such as the Masai Mara in Kenya, the rain forests of Costa Rica, the bird migration routes in europe, the tiger reserves of India, the highlands of Scotland and to places as unusual as the uninhabited island of Skomer, where puffins and shearwaters gather to breed. When not travelling further afield, Hilary can be found painting and passing on her knowledge in her own studio gallery in the wonderful seaside town of St. Ives, Cornwall.

Hilary’s original fine art paintings and wildlife prints being displayed in homes, galleries and private collections worldwide. Exhibitions that have featured Hilary’s work include the Marwell Wildlife International Wildlife Art Society (MIWAS) Exhibition and the National Exhibition of Wildlife Artists (NEWA), and her original paintings have been shown as far away as the International Falconry Festival in Abu Dhabi. Having studied at Loughborough University’s School of the Arts, illustrated for the Leicester and Rutland Wildlife Trust and had her work displayed in the Leicester Museum, her work rose to international prominence and proves popular among art lovers, falconry enthusiasts, zoologists and conservationists worldwide.
