Carl Fitton

After completing renovation work on my current house and now that the kids don’t get up quite so often in the night I felt it was time to make my passion for art into my full time career.   I have always been a keen artist and studied art throughout school, I continued at Cumbria College of Art & Design where I completed a foundation course before studying design at Wolverhampton College of Art & Design. Since gaining my degree with honours I have completed numerous commissions covering a variety of subject matter but only ever in my spare time.   As I get older I have realized, to me there is nothing more satisfying than completing a picture you are happy with and the reactions you get from the person who has commissioned you or who purchases the piece from you!   So this time last year I dusted off my art equipment and began working. Next year as well as locating new galleries to exhibit my work I am also hoping to enter some competitions to help publicise my work.   I am fascinated with the amazing creatures which we have the privilege of sharing our planet with and love to draw and paint them in a variety of mediums. I think the character of an animal can be seen in their faces and in particular their eyes. It is said the eyes are the windows to the soul and I believe this is true in animals as well as us humans. I am fascinated with this concept and strive to capture this in both my commissioned pieces and self initiated work. I am currently working on a series of studies focusing primarily on close up images of the faces of a variety of my favourite animals, some are big some small some very rare and others we see every day but all share a beauty.
