Morgane Antoine

Artist

Renowned for capturing the true essence and spirit of her subjects in amazingly detailed and realistic works of art, Morgane’s passion and fascination for the natural wonders mingle with her acrylic pigments and every brushstroke invites you to travel though animal kingdom.

As a self-taught artist, Morgane has perfected her talent by studying the technique of hyper-realism masters such as Robert Bateman, Carl Brenders or Terry Isaac. The approach is both technical and naturalist with an intensive work of observation, research and reference gathering on the subjects and their environment as an in intimate knowledge is key to faithfully portray the creatures’ grace, agility and nobility. Some pieces take up to several months to complete, wildlife art is all about passion but also patience.

Morgane’s art has won several international prizes, including a place in the finals of 2011, 2012 & 2013 BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year competition and the 2017 David Sheperd Wildlife Artist of the Year exhibition in the UK, runner-up of the 2014 & Winner of the 2016 Golden Turtle contest in Russia and numerous mentions and special awards in miniature shows in the USA and Canada.

Published in 2010 in the book L’Art Animalier : La relève des artistes contemporains (“Wildlife Art: contemporary artists taking over”) in France, she was also chosen as “Artist of the Month” in 2013 by The Artists’s Magazine in the USA.
