I was born in 1955 in Middlesex, England and had an interest in art from an early age which developed during my school years. Since then I have had experience in interior design and electrical retail management and in 1978 moved to Preston, Lancashire (about 35 miles from Liverpool) where I still live with my wife and three daughters. I began painting full-time in 1985 and soon realized I had the "knack" of creating likenesses of people and animals and fairly quickly established myself as a portrait painter, supplying pictures to galleries and private collections world-wide. In 1989, eager to try new things, I began painting a wider diversity of subject matter including aviation, sporting and wildlife and the subsequent acclaim for this work led me to open my own art gallery in Preston. After 6 years running the gallery I began to feel a little "bogged down" by the day to day running of the retail side and not spending enough time with brush and easel. So in 1996 I closed the gallery and set up a small studio in the attic at home and concentrated on doing some serious painting. I have always been asked to produce portraits of peoples pets - cats, dogs horses etc and it was from this that I began painting other wildlife subjects, particularly African and the "big cats". I now feel priviliged to consider myself a "wildlife artist" and never cease to be amazed amazed and delighted to see the canvas come to life before my eyes.
"Sultan", a stunning original oil painting on canvas direct from the studio of David Stribbling, one of the UK's leading wildlife artists and listed at Artprice, the world leader in art market information (see www.artprice.com). Superb study of a young Siberian Tiger. Beautiful detail and colour, the size is 18x24" (unframed). Galleries and collectors on both sides of the Atlantic eagerly await new work by this artist, whose work has been sold through world renowned auction houses Christies (London) and Phillips (Chester) and this is a wonderful opportunity to obtain an ORIGINAL oil painting from one of the top exponents of the genre. Paintings of this quality (when you can get them) are in great demand and don't come along very often. This is not a photo, print or reproduction of any kind - it's an original oil painting, each brush stroke from the hand of the artist, David Stribbling. Buyer to pay $5 shipping by air mail (or £2.50 UK) and I can take US and UK checks or credit cards via PayPal and Bidpay. Please e-mail any queries, thanks.
