Raymond Ching is internationally recognised as one of the world's greatest wildlife artists. Born in Wellington, New Zealand, he established himself as a wildlife artist in the 1960s, before moving to England where he has spent the majority of his career. Capturing the quicksilver character of a bird, the delicacy of its plumage he captures the essence of his subject. These are the aspects of his work that have attracted international acclaim.
