Michael Oxenham is recognised as one of Britain's leading countryside artists.

His work is collected worldwide and the commissions he receives are as diverse as postage stamps, magazine covers and paintings for the collector and boardroom. His work now appears at major fine art salerooms.

A somewhat private and reclusive artist, Oxenham works from his 17th century barn studio in a remote valley in Herefordshire surrounded by a constant source of inspiration from the countryside. He works mainly in oils.

Patrick A. Oxenham 1922 - 1996

Patrick is long acknowledged to be a leading wildlife and animal painter.

From his early years he showed a keen interest in nature and wildlife which, coupled with an instinctive drawing ability, developed into the work which is so much sought after today.

He worked for most of the major publishers in Europe and America and among his many acclaimed commissions were the very popular wildlife and horse stamps designed for the Post Office. His work on the latter became the subject of a television programme, "All the Queen's Horses"

Our prints are limited editions unless otherwise described. Each one has been examined, signed and numbered in pencil by the artist.

The greatest care has been taken to ensure that the prints are of the highest quality and true to the original paintings.

This has been achieved by use of the most modern printing techniques available, and very close examination before release for sale.

The best way of keeping a print in good condition is to keep it dry, and avoid exposure to strong light, especially sunlight. Few inks or pigments can withstand long exposure to strong sunlight without fading, and even the best of papers become brittle and mottled in high temperatures.

All images on this website are subject to the limitations of the scanning process and digital file formats, and appear even more stunning in reality!

You can buy online using this website or email Alice at   for further information.

Prices are given for each print within the website. Postage and packing is a flat rate of £5 per order, and free for orders of more than five prints.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you!
