This goldfinch, one of the prettiest British Finches was collecting soft material from a thistle for lining its nest.

Alan Hunt began painting at the age of eight, when his mother gave him a box of paints to occupy him as he recuperated from an illness.

After studying art at Middlesborough Art College, Alan moved to Leeds College and then Bristol University to concentrate on zoology.

His first solo exhibition was held in his home town of Redcar, northeast England, at the age of eighteen, since when his original paintings have been shown and are held in private collections worldwide. Receiving international acclaim, he has won many awards both here and in the USA, where he was the first non-American to be voted onto the American Wildlife Art Hall of Fame. Alan's work has attracted a lot of interest at major auctions, including Sotherby's, Bonham's and Christie's.

Alan is a keen conservationist and travels the world to experience his wildlife subjects at first hand. When not painting, he spends much of his time pursuing his life love, birdwatching.
