emma swift 
wildlife artist

Hello! My name is Emma Swift and I am a wildlife artist living in the UK. I work predominantly in oil. I have always been fascinated and excited by the natural world, and I love the challenge of capturing its beauty. While I take pride in being accurate with details, I like to approach my work in a painterly, colourful and inquisitive way. Over the past few years, I have worked with several wildlife charities using my art to help raise money for vital conservation projects around the world. Charities I work with include:
As well as working with conservation charities, I also undertake painting commissions. Feel free to email me with any queries at: emma@emmaswiftart.com
