Recent Works - c 2001 to 2007
The paintings under recent works
include some of the paintings sold over the past few years.
Included in this date range is Colette's 2001 Serval
painting (oil on linen 26 x 21"). This painting was chosen to receive the
Best of Show Award in the Wild Cat Art 2001 exhibition, an international event organised
by Sierra Endangered Cat Haven
(now known as Cat Haven Wild Animal Park), Dunlap, California.
Whilst working on the painting, I went on-line to look up something or other on servals
and came across the Cat Haven website.
They were calling for artists anywhere in the world to submit their paintings of wild
cats, and I had just enough time to get my painting completed, photographed and framed and
ready to be sent off to the US. Subsequently I received a call (in the middle of the
night!) informing me that Serval 2001
had been judged best in show. The juror was the late Simon Combes, an artist with a great
passion for cats, and it was an honour to receive such recognition after just a year or so
of painting professionally.
2001 was purchased for the Worrell Collection of Animal Art,
Charlottesville, Virginia, another unexpected and great privilege.
A couple of limited edition prints are
available - Scottish Wildcat and Fox Cubs Studies. All prints sales benefit animal
