All about Alex McGarry

Alex McGarry is a professional artist specialising in oil paintings of British wildlife and birds. She is the winner of the prestigious title ‘Up & Coming Artist of the Year’ awarded by the Fine Art Trade Guild. She is represented by the UK’s largest distributor of original paintings and limited edition prints – De Montfort Fine Art. And as such her paintings can be found in galleries across the UK and on board luxury cruise ships such as the Queen Mary II.

Alex has a busy year ahead, where there’ll be lots of opportunities for you to meet Alex, view her artwork and perhaps even purchase a special memento of our birds. Fifty percent of painting sales and one hundred percent of print sales goes towards supporting our work!

On your visit

As part of our partnership, an exclusive collection of Alex’s paintings are on permanent display in the Trust shop. Each piece is absolutely stunning, and can be purchased on the day of your visit for an extraordinary memento of our birds.

Throughout the year, Alex will be joining us at the Trust to paint new pieces of our birds. Whilst having a chance to watch her paint in real-time, you’ll be able to get to know her, and ask her any questions you may have about her work. Alex will be here on various Sundays throughout the year – keep an eye on our social media pages for announcements of dates and times.

If you’d like to be in with a chance to win a stunning original artwork, you can enter our new Artist in Residence raffle! Alex is kindly donating her time to create a stunning portrait of our iconic Egyptian Vulture, Boe, which will be given to one lucky winner at the end of the year! Find out more soon on our social media channels and via our Owl Message e-newsletter.
