Born in 1957 in Staffordshire, Nigel Hemming focused much of his young life around animals and even today these creatures of big and small are most frequently the subjects of his works. Initially focusing his works around birds and other avians, Developing his art style as he progressed through life, Hemming centred his pieces around the relationship between man and dog, the latter taking prominence over the former.
This line of works served to gain him a publishing contract during the 1980s and ever since, Hemming's popularity has continued to soar through the roof with many of his works being published in Limited Edition Prints. In 1996 the Fine Arts Trade Guild awarded Hemming the title of 'Published Artist of the Year' for his leading line of work as an animal artist. Today his works are widely distributed worldwide, especially so within the United Kingdom and America.
