Mothers Love – Katrin Snell 

Why did you pick this picture? 

This has been my most popular print and was my Mother’s Day special edition 

Where did the idea for this art come from?

 I wanted to start a wildlife range to compliment my pet portraits and this was my first one. I wanted to try drawing a Hare but to make my drawing a different angle to the usual ones. I also liked the baby and mother idea for Mother’s Day gifts. 

What does this art mean to you? 

It’s special as it was one of the first prints I have sold and it reminds me of the bond between me and my boys .

What can you tell us about yourself? 

I am a self taught artist living in west Somerset, we spend a lot of time walking our dog in the quantock hills and exmoor, this is where I found my inspiration for my wildlife series. I live with my husband and my three boys and draw and paint in the evenings. We have a springer spaniel and he was the first dog I drew a portrait of. This is the first year selling my prints and I now have them in six local businesses in Somerset. 

What more can you tell us about your art? 

I have a creative background studying fine art, graphics and I have a National Diploma in Media makeup.

My work is highly detailed and has been described as very life like, it would be classed as realism. I try to capture the subjects personality and a deep variety of colours in their fur or feathers. I enjoy drawing the eyes the best, as these add the character of the subject.
