philip snow - anglesey bird and wildlife artist
Philip Snow is a wildlife & landscape artist who has lived in North Wales, mainly on Anglesey, for nearly 50 years.
He is a passionate and dedicated wildlife conservationist and has been painting and writing about such subjects here, especially birds, for 40 years.
Anglesey, my wildlife home
Philip lives in the coastal village of Malltraeth on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey.
His studio and home are just meters from the shore and overlook the stunning Cefni estuary and Cob, Newborough Forest and Snowdonia, where he can see and paint Anglesey’s special wildlife.
In fact, many coastal birds and wildlife like Grey Herons, Little Egrets, ducks, waders and sea-birds in their thousands, as well as Otters, are regularly just beyond his garden wall - his own personal wildlife hide, always open!
Philip’s studio on Anglesey is crammed with bird and wildlife paintings, as he works for so many different publishers, world-wide, producing work for scores of books, magazines, prints, cards, reserve maps & leaflets, calendars, conservation bodies, museums etc, as well as for many exhibitions - like the current (autumn, 2017) ‘Birds of Wales’ show at the Anglesey Heritage Gallery, Oriel Ynys Mon, by Llangefni.
(The Gallery also contains a superb collection of the wide-ranging work of the “20th century’s all-round finest Country Artist”, C. F. Tunnicliffe RA OBE, one of Philip Snow’s greatest inspirations.)
