Winner of the Public Vote 2020: “Giraffe" By Nicky Heard

This beautiful piece from Nicky depicts the graceful head of a giraffe peering from the frame. It is made all the more impressive by the fact that it was painted using wool.

Nicky says of her win: ‘This is the first time I have participated in the Southern Nature Art Exhibition and I did not know how wool would be received as a painting media. 

I am thrilled that people have voted for me and, I feel, it opens up possibilities for more artists using unusual media.’

Many voters were impressed by this piece, here are some comments:

“He looks so alive! The detail in him is superb.”

“I love the stark shift of line drawing to detail and the look captured on the giraffe’s face, like you’ve just interrupted their dinner.”

“The use of wool on canvas fascinates me, the detail Nicky gets into it is truly astonishing. She’s also a wonderful lady, very humble.:

“I love the angle of the piece and the simplicity of the artwork.”
