Andrew Denman: Wildlife in Acrylic

While in high school, Andrew Denman organized his first solo exhibition in his school library. Since then he’s earned a bachelor of fine arts degree from Saint Mary’s College in Moraga, California, and has held exhibitions at several California galleries. His work can be found in the Natural World Museum in San Francisco, the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming, and the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin. Denman takes frequent field trips to observe his subjects in their natural habitats and to collect photographic reference material for his painting. “Most of the time when I’m at work in my studio,” says Denman, “one or more of my pet birds are on my shoulder.” Denman also paints wild animals and still life.
