Born 1945 London, England

Born in London, Ingrid Weiersbye grew up in Rhodesia where she established her reputation as an artist ‘depicting the natural world and issues of environmental concern.’

Light and atmospheric, her paintings are based on spontaneous sketches endorsed with her observations made on “birding” trips in Natal or the Cape where she has a holiday home.

Weiersbye has held eight solo exhibitions. Beside these she has printed five limited edition print releases, has participated in numerous art and environmental projects and her work has been published in several books. She has been well supported by corporate and private collectors, showing particularly in the U.K., Germany and South Africa.

• She has exhibited work for seven consecutive years at the Society of Wildlife Artists’ annual exhibition in London.
• She has exhibited at the British Birdwatching Show for three years at which she won the ‘best stand’ award in 1995 in the art category for her bird paintings.
• She was invited by the Tron and Swann Gallery in London to participate in several major art exhibition from 1992 to 1996 including ‘Parrots of the World’, ‘Wildfowl and Waterfowl’ as well as the British Game Fair.

Additionally she exhibits on most major South African wildlife exhibitions of international wildlife art held regularly at the Everard Reade Gallery in Johannesburg.

She is concerned about the ignorance, short sighted and rapid destruction of the natural world. Her art promotes a message of conservation.
