Claire Heffron

A wildlife artist who is completely passionate about all kinds of animals with a focus on endangered species.

I enjoy mixing media to create individual, unusual and exciting artwork which defines my unique style.

My foremost goal is to help endangered, and often overlooked, animals through art and to raise awareness of their plight. I also like to use my artwork to raise important funds for animal charities and I have contributed to a number of good causes such as Coral Reef Alliance, David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, Belize Wildcat Foundation, MONA UK, Prints for Pangolins, Woburn Safari Park on behalf of Impact Madagascar and the Artists for Painted Dogs fundraiser exhibitions.

I have achieved a number of accolades within the Wildlife Art community. 

- I was accepted for the “Artist’s for Painted Dogs” exhibition in both 2022 and 2021.
- In both 2019 and 2021, I was a finalist in the Explorers Against Extinction “Sketch for Survival” competition.
- I made it as a finalist in the prestigious David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year 2020
- Shortlisted as a finalist in the 2021 SAA “Artist of the Year” competition.

​I am predominately self taught artist and also have a BA Hons Photography and am a member of the South East Open Studios and Sussex Artists.

I live in rural Surrey with my husband, two sons and beloved Cockerpoo, Marley.
