Joel Merriner - Cornwall
I was born in Bath in 1970. After spending my early childhood in Australia and New Zealand, where my interest in wildlife began, I moved with my family to Cornwall, where I have lived on and off for over twenty years. In 1990-'92 I studied Wildlife Illustration at Carmarthen College of Technology and Art, gaining a HND in the subject.

After leaving college I spent some time working in the animation business as a storyboard artist, until several years ago when I decided to concentrate on my wildlife art. Since then I have exhibited work locally and nationwide, and have produced pieces for the World Wide Fund for Nature and the International Primate Protection league.

Please note that the artist is available for private commissions.
