Andrew Haslen was born in the UK in 1953. He lives in Suffolk with his wife, two daughters, two dogs, two cats and three tortoises.
Drawing and painting from an early age, he is totally self-taught. Andrew is inspired by the landscape and wildlife that surrounds his home. A lifelong interest in nature allows him to have the required knowledge of his subject. He has been strongly motivated by the work of 20th Century wildlife artists such as R B Talbot Kelly, Eric Ennion, Robert Hainard and others.
He was elected a member of the Society of Wildlife Artists in 1988 and has exhibited at their annual exhibition every year since then, winning several awards for his work. He shows his work at many galleries and museums including being selected several times for the Birds in Art exhibition at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Wisconsin.
He has also taken part in a number of projects organized by the Artists for Nature Foundation. One memorable project was in the mid-1990s to the Copper River Delta in Alaska with several other international artists. Where, amongst other things, he spent time sketching belted kingfishers and hawk owls.
Andrew specializes as a painter/printmaker, working in oils and making linocuts where composition plays an important role.
There are two books that have been published on his work. The Winter Hare, published in 2010 by Langford Press and Halcyon, published in 2014 by Mascot Media.
