Born in Co Durham and, following training in animal anatomy at the World of Nature, Yorkshire, David Cemmick became a freelance artist in 1975. A passionate wildlife observer and conservationist, David's travels have taken him to the remotest corners of the globe to document nature as he sees it, in the wild. Television appearances and conservation work with world-renowned botanist Prof. David Bellamy molded his early career and his first two books documented the groundbreaking conservation work of the New Zealand Wildlife Services. For four years he held the post of Senior Lecturer in Environmental Observation at the University of Sunderland.
His passion for three-dimensional works have explored clay, porcelain, silver and bronze, from exquisite silver miniatures to monumental landscape sculptures. There is a spiritual and environmental resonance, which connects his work to the natural world, and beyond.
