Dedicated wildlife artist Colette Cheyne has drawn and painted since childhood. Early training included attending life drawing classes during the early 1980s while based in Australia. Visits to the United Kingdom followed with a firm focus on wildlife work and the transition from pencil drawing to oil painting. In 1988 Colette returned to New Zealand.
Colette is represented in the United States and her work has featured in Wildlife Art publications. In 2001 her painting of the Serval Cat won the prestigious Wild Cat Art - Best in Show Award. The long awaited 2007 solo exhibition Encounters - Wild Cat Studies was a complete sellout.
