English born artist John Seerey-Lester was one of the most renowned of today’s wildlife and historic artists and is internationally recognized for his paintings depicting East African as well as North American wildlife.
World-renowned artist John Seerey-Lester was born in Manchester, England, where he grew up with a sketch book in hand. Receiving his first commission at the early age of 13, John became a professional artist in 1974. For some ten years prior to this, John was a journalist, freelance writer, editor of several magazines and worked in advertising and public relations in both the private sector and local government in the UK.
It was in 1980, after making his first trip to East Africa, that John began painting images of the natural world. His respect for the work of fellow English artist, David Shepherd, heavily influenced his decision to travel to Africa and paint wildlife. This became a turning point in his career.
In 1982 John moved to the United States. He signed with Mill Pond Press the following year. Since then he has had some 300 limited edition prints published. Many of these have sold out within days of release. Demand for his original works has become stronger each year.
