My name is Imi Woods. I am a British Animal Artist based in Surrey.
I discovered that I could paint animals back in 2009. Since then, I have been teaching myself and challenging myself to continually improve, which has resulted in my colourful, vibrant wildlife paintings and pet portraits.
By day, I work at a large contractors, writing bids to win more work. By night (and weekend), I will be found cross-legged on the lounge floor, latest painting on lap, paint covering my hands and clothes… and often my face! As you can imagine, I am a treat to live with(!)
In the last couple of years, painting turned from just a hobby into my passion and my lifestyle. It completely calms me, and has brought me so much pride, determination and happiness. Now my real aim is to make other people happy through my art too! Nothing makes me giddier than a thoughtful testimonial from a happy customer.
