Picture of Joel Kirk

"All wildlife is precious and if we turn our backs too long, it will be gone."

Joel Kirk was born in 1948 and has a love of wildlife which stems back from his school years where his paintings dominated competitions and gave him his main subject matter. Kirk has donated many paintings to help fund-raising for charities, working with Virginia McKenna, The Born Free Foundation and the Diane Fossey Gorilla Fund.

Joel Kirk was born in Dorking. After leaving school, he studied at Southend College of Art for three years, then became a freelance artist working for a number of publishing houses, including leading publishers, Felix Rosenstiels, which relationship gave Joel Kirk a successful career for the five years he was connected with the company.

Joel Kirk's supreme quality and accuracy has built him a worldwide following and Kirk pictures have a ready market in North America, Australia, Japan, Europe and the United Kingdom. A wide range of Kirk's work has been published for the small print market.

Joel's work portrays a broad spectrum of wildlife. As well as the glamorous 'Big Cats' and Elephants, Joel likes to paint wildlife closer to home; birds, foxes, squirrels and deer all feature in their natural surroundings or as studies.

Joel set himself a task of painting as many breeds of dogs as are known in this country and all were put into print. Joel Kirk watercolours contain very fine detail which is unusual. It is felt that any original work by Joel must appreciate in value.
