Nick is a keen ornithologist and photographer and his wildlife adventures around the world provide the inspiration for his paintings.
The Purple-Crowned Fairy Wren is endemic to Northern Australia. It is a small perky bird and prefers dense vegetation. However, it's favoured habitats are threatened with large scale bush fires and livestock grazing. Measures are being taken by the Australian Wildlife Conservancy to manage the habitats to help protect the wildlife in this area.
This painting has an ivory and taupe frame with a silver slip under glass. Image 29cm x 29cm. Frame 45cm x 45cm.
Also available as a limited edition print (from £45). Please go to 'Nick Giles - Wildlife Prints'.
