About the Artist
D Y Hide rediscovered her artistic Muse at the Titchfield Art and Craft Show in 2014, and has been exhibiting across the land ever since.

She is a full member of the Society of Feline Artists (S.O.F.A.) and a signature member of the UK Colour Pencil Society (UKCPS). She is also a Professional Associate Artist of the SAA.

A fully qualified and vastly experienced Advanced Skills Teacher of Art & Design, D Y Hide delivers highly enjoyable and informative workshops as well as demonstrations across the southern counties, working in a wide range of media from pencil to pastel to paint.

D Y Hide’s work can be seen at an ever-widening circle of events: - Titchfield Art and Craft Show (where else?!), the Association of Animal Artists (AAA), The UK Colour Pencil Society International, The Wildlife Art Society International (TWASI), Reading Contemporary Art Fair, and the London S.O.F.A show. She usually mans a gazebo at the Loseley Garden Show in the summertime and takes part in Hampshire Open Studios as a member of the Creative Coverage group,

I accept commissions with a great big smile!

A commissioned work starts with a consultation between artist and buyer. Price is based on size, complexity and time needed for completion. In most cases, it's preferable to work from the artist's own photos and sketches. However, you are welcome to provide the photos yourself as long as they contain plenty of clearly defined detail. When both parties have agreed on what is required and how it will be completed, a deposit will secure your place on the waiting list.

To start the process, please leave a message on this site on the 'Contact The Artist' page, OR on my FB Page, OR by clicking 'Request Custom Order' at my Etsy Shop (see below).

Land of Princes
I had a whale of a time this year - highly appropriate for a wildlife artist! I thoroughly enjoyed a heaving Preview Evening, followed by a morning supposedly demonstrating colour pencil techniques, but actually taken up with meeting all kinds of new people interested in art, and interested in attending a proposed series of art classes. Along with the new came the familiar - the very welcome face of local artist Lynne Davies (check her out if you don't know her work already - she's amazing!) with Richard Digance in tow (yes, I DID say Richard Digance!), as well as Vic Bettridge, Julie Monk and the hugely entertaining David Rose-Massom. There wasn't really time to do any work! Besides, I had to rush away in the afternoon to meet a man in a service station to hand over a painting...
Great event and enormous thanks to Mark Pearce and his team for the supremely slick organisation. Can't wait for next year.....!
