This weekend 5th & 6th December we have GSC's Christmas Pop Up In Store

Collection: Andrew Pledge

Beauty is in the eye of wildlife painter Andrew Pledge, who seeks out unpopular - and lets face it, often ugly-birds to create beautiful images. It’s a talent that’s won the self taught wildlife artist the prestigious David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation Wildlife Artist of the Year 2020 award for his painting of an American wood stork.

For 10 years, Andrew created handmade models for a small architectural firm in London. In his last years for the firm, he designed architectural models for the company’s exhibition stand at the esteemed Venice Biennale, 2018.

In September 2019, he decided to take a leap and become a full-time artist. And, as if affirming his career move, his very first painting after about 10 years away from the art won him the award.
