Spencer Shakespeare b. 1967

Born in 1967 in London, Shakespeare discovered his addiction to the natural world in his yearly holidays to Cornwall with his family, which he returned to after 20 years of living on Australia's Gold Coast. He now lives and works near Penzance, where he says the bird song is at its most beautiful.

Being an obsessive and automatic drawer since the age of seven, Spencer went on to complete a degree in Illustration at Bournemouth College of Art and Design (1992-1995). His love of drawing never stopped, and as he matured both as a person and an artist he sought to break away from commissioned work, seeking his own artistic independence. Now an internationally successful artist, independence is what he has certainly achieved.
