Welcome to Purplelionfish!
The online world of Laura Onyshchenko, Berkshire based wildlife artist and member of MIWAS.
This website is about my artwork: originals, giclée prints & commissions
My main subject matter is wild animals such as giraffes, elephants, zebras and snow leopards but I am also happy to undertake drawing or painting commissions of pets.
I have been short-listed for David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation Wildlife Artist of the Year 2016 with my painting "Singing Fish". The international art exhibition is at the Mall Galleries, London from 28 June- 2 July 2016. The "Singing Fish" were encountered near Marsa Alam, Egypt, during a very memorable last dive of the holiday. I swam around a coral outcrop and was delighted to be greeted by a huge shoal of striped mackerel filling the view. The fish were enthusiastically feeding and they looked like they had just burst into a group song!
My armadillo painting "Homemakers: Millie & Mike" was shortlisted for David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation Wildlife Artist of the Year 2010 (WAY2010) and was exhibited and for sale at the Mall Galleries, London from 24th - 29th May 2010 (50% of proceeds go towards the conservation work of DSWF).
