The fluency with which Gary Stinton renders his powerful animal portraits is the result of a long journey of enquiry and creative experimentation. Producing bold and impressive portraits of big cats and hounds, Stinton seeks to portray their power, strength and formidable beauty.


Stinton works predominantly in pastel, a medium made of virtually pure pigment with a little gum tragacanth to bind them. Through his work, he has raised awareness about wildlife conservation by working alongside wildlife charities such as Elephant Family, the UK's leading conservation charity for the endangered Asian elephant.


Gary Stinton (b.1961, UK) lives and works in Herefordshire. He has been represented by Jonathan Cooper Park Walk Gallery for 15 years. His work is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Hounds and Hunting, Virginia, USA.
