ABOUT GRENVILLE MOORE
Grenville is an accomplished and distinctive painter working from his idyllic garden studio in a village on
the Warwickshire/Oxfordshire border.
After many years when illustration, design and cartoon strips were his hobby, he became a specialist decorator and muralist and completed assignments and commissions in homes throughout the Cotswolds and London. He also wrote and illustrated articles for two national publications.
These decorative and interior design skills remain with him - and very much on show - in his paintings of wild animals, many of which are enhanced and embellished with backgrounds of rich tapestry motifs, Arcadian glades and medieval-style foliage. His love of heraldry also shines through in clever motifs and touches of symbolism.
His current, internationally-popular work specialises in dramatic animal portraits, often large scale and close-up. Detail and accuracy are key.
He is passionate about telling the story of each creature, accentuating the unusual and celebrating the wildness, dignity and soul of each animal.
The rich narrative of the painting is often further enhanced by its elaborate or traditional framing, matching perfectly with the inventive, decorative backdrops.
