Artist Profile

Roy Aplin


Born and bred in Swanage, Dorset. Lived all my life in Purbeck and have always loved it's countryside. A very keen ornithologist from an early age. One of my favourite subjects whilst at school was art and my natural talent won me many prizes for this subject. My interest in the hobby of Aviculture also began as a young boy and to this day is my main hobby. I specialize in painting birds of the world but paint dogs, cats and other animals on a commission basis only. Most of my subjects are painted in Watercolour/Gouache but also work in Acrylic, Oils and Pencil.
I am completely self taught.
