      South African born, Darryn grew up with a passion for the natural world. His earliest artworks were the drawings created during family trips into the African bush. Living within the borders of the Kruger National Park, provided him with an extraordinary foundation for his future. Africa is, he says, “particularly blessed with its vast open spaces and secret places, dramatic seasons and variety of life forms.” Darryn’s stated aim is to portray the beauty, diversity and profundity of life. His work isolates his chosen subject against a single colour backdrop, so the only hint of their environment is seen through the reflections in their eyes. This almost cinematic effect makes each animal seem to project beyond the plane of the canvas, bringing them into sharp and immediate relief. With a dual effect of creating a strong and lifelike presence, as well as “seeming to place the viewer within the physical experience of the painting” says Darryn. The detail and lifelike quality comes from going on field trips into the bush as well as at breeding centres. He paints his realistic animal portraits in oil on linen. Over the years he has refined his skill and technique to a point where fur patterns and textures are vividly and authentically reproduced. He has won and been shortlisted for awards including the David Shepherd wildlife artist of the year and the Hirum Blauveldt purchase award. And has been a resident artist at a Golf Estate, on the banks of the Crocodile River in Kruger National Park, South Africa, and has had two residencies at the Nature in Art museum in Gloucester. He’s auctioned his work for charities such as the rhino conservation. His paintings have become highly sought after, and in recent years he has undertaken commissions for exclusive game lodges as well as for corporate and private collectors. His artwork is exhibited all over the world and resides in many private collections worldwide. “Each painting I undertake feels like an expedition, with it's preparation, endurance, lessons and satisfaction. It is my hope that these qualities will shine through, and capture your imagination.”
