We are delighted to feature Louise McNaught's striking Wild Angel artwork in this year's Sketch for Survival. At our gallery@oxo exhibition on the South Bank in London the afternoon sun lit up this piece beautifully, with it taking on different hues throughout the day and into evening. This artwork is valued at £2,500 so this is a rare opportunity to snap up a Louise McNaught original at a very competitive price while also contributing to frontline conservation.

Louise‘s creations feature nature and animals, where the animals are God-like, sublime and ethereal in their presence and depiction. McNaught's work is motivated by emotive and spiritual experiences which has manifested in a mixed-media approach. Her soft style suggests a delicate relationship between nature and ourselves, making a clear point about man's destruction of nature - which flutters jewel-like in the balance. When focusing on endangered species the imagery often takes on a duality of not only what is happening to the animal itself, but also reflects how we feel psychologically about the effect the human race is having on these species.Louise graduated with a degree in Fine Art from the University of Greenwich.
Red Swan. Acrylic, pencil and gold leaf on canvas.This piece shows the swan in all its glory in blazing neon hues, with its wings outstretched. The neon paint makes the magnificent bird look as though it is shining from within, which is furthered by the reflective pool of gold leaf, hinting at the divine status of this angelic, yet powerful bird…..
