Alan Ainslie - Wildlife artist

Alan Ainslie is one of South Africa's most celebrated and respected wildlife artists. His work ranges from prints to drawings, paintings and sculptures. He was commissioned in 1984 to produce paintings for a wildlife calendar. By 1987 the well known conservationist, Clive Walker, was opening Ainslie's first solo exhibition and since then his paintings have been included in exhibitions with world renowned artists such as Harris-Ching (New Zealand), Keith Joubert (South Africa), Kim Donaldson (South Africa), and Paul Bosman (USA). He has also  been commissioned for many life-sized sculptures and donates many of them as prizes for nature conservation competitions and fund-raisers. He has done portraits for some of the world's greatest leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Nadine Gordimer, Albert Luthuli and Desmond Tutu. His graphic designing skills have brought him to design numerous stamp series.
