Info on Master Artist Shannagh-Leigh Hartshorn:

“I am a freelance artist and animator working in Manchester, England specialising in animal art. I love creating still and moving images, bringing characters to life in an animation or a painting. I’m quite versatile and love working in many mediums, I currently take commissions in watercolour, acrylic and graphite but I create artworks in digital and coloured pencil too. I pride myself in my attention to detail, I aim to create a realistic painting with a painterly feel, be it the brush strokes used or a slightly richer colour in my artwork. I capture personality in all my paintings as well as the spirit of each animal through their eyes.”-  Shannagh-Leigh Hartshorn
