Patrick Oxenham
British 1922 - 1996

Born in India, British artist Patrick Oxenham began drawing at the age of five. When he was 18, his family returned to England and settled in Gloucestershire. Primarily a self-taught artist, he went into the army during World War II where he was in great demand for his portrait work.

A renowned wildlife artist, Oxenham creates distinctive and realistic paintings inspired by his love of animals. He made philatelic history in 1977 by producing the first postage stamp designs (featuring British wildlife) ever to be reproduced as fine art prints.

His paintings continue to be admired and sought-after throughout the world.
