Christopher Pope creates wonderfully realistic portraits of Australia¹s diverse bird species and wildlife. His skilful representations of his subjects are often mistaken for photographs, capturing delightfully intimate encounters with shy and elusive subjects, leaving a lasting impression on the viewer.
In recent years, the artist has been commissioned several times to illustrate Australia Post stamps and has won Most Popular Australian Stamp Issue, 2009 for the series Australian Songbirds.
Christopher paints to illustrate the beauty and fragility of our natural wildlife. He is currently represented by Main Street Gallery in Montville, Queensland.
