The Wildlife Art of Kevin Hayler

Welcome. My name is Kevin Hayler and I’ve been drawing wildlife for a living for over 20 years.

It’s been a successful career and has given me incredible freedom. It’s taken me around the world doing something I love. Now it’s time to pass on my experience and expertise to others.

This is what you can expect from my website

  3. How to travel to see wildlife: If you want to see the natural world, I’ve traveled everywhere independently. I can show you how to do it and where to go; and without being wealthy!
  4. My wildlife art: I share my wildlife drawings. If you want some affordable art, I have plenty to show you, and the price won’t be a barrier! Or you can simply enjoy my art and get inspired.

This is what I do, as a Pencil Wildlife Artist

For the last 20+ years, I’ve been making my living by selling my wildlife art prints and using the money to travel the world and look for wildlife.

And no, that’s not spiced up to make my life sound cool, that’s what I do. I travel abroad for 4 months every year and sell my wildlife prints to tourists for 6 months. And I always end the tax year with a profit!

I do well for the short time I’m prepared to trade, namely the summer season. There’s more to life than just making money right?

I want to get away all winter.

My primary aim is to find happiness, not riches, and that is success in my book.

I live a simple life.

What Makes My Pencil Wildlife Art Different?

I’m the real deal. I make the most of the talent I have and I live the lifestyle I talk about. What you see is what you get.

I’m passionate about the natural world and conservation. I’m addicted to travel, it’s my drug of choice, and enough people like my work to fund my lifestyle.
