'Douglas the Stag'
I live in a North Oxfordshire village with my wife and 2 sons. I have been a commercial photographer for over 20 years creating images for
advertising and PR firms. 2020 changed everything. During the initial lockdown in 2020 I began to create the first animal portraits, experimenting with blending photography and painting. It was an idea I had wanted to explore for several years but never had the time. As the events of 2020 unfolded time was no longer an issue.
The pictures were never intended to be sold. Just a creative idea that I wanted to experiment with during difficult times. A celebration of renewed connections with our surroundings that offered such great solace during my isolations.
After lots of positive feedback people began to enquire where they could 'get one' I decided to have them printed and framed. I spent months finding a printer and framer that I was happy with.... Eventually Atherton Art Prints was born. The pictures are now available as Limited edition framed prints, exclusive greeting cards and new for 22 as travertine stone coasters.
I hope that you enjoy the pictures as much as I have enjoyed creating them.
As well as the artworks on sale the Jam Factory also offer a selection of Lee Atherton cards available to buy in our art shop.
