Nick Hartnell was born in Surrey and moved to rural Sussex with his family 15 years ago.
His first love was birdwatching, his whole family would holiday in Scotland and Wales where wildlife and birds were abundant. He studied at Reigate School of Art and Design and then became an architectural model maker - and this attention to detail is reflected in his style of art.
His first exhibition at Warnham in 2017 was a collection of paintings in gouache and watercolour.
For this exhibition he has used pastels as his medium to capture the fur and feathers of his chosen British Wildlife subjects.
Entrance to the Visitor Centre and exhibition are free. Admission charges to the reserve apply.
