When Sinclair Stratton channels her deep love for animals onto the paper, what emerge are vibrantly colorful images that capture the essence of her subjects and the admiration of her human audience, as well.
Sinclair’s captivating portraits of wild and domestic life, created with watercolor in a deep-saturation technique that brings an unusual intensity to the medium, brought unexpected fame to the self-taught artist when Forbes Magazine named her ”Best Emerging Artist” in a 2002 article on the world’s leading pet portrait artists.
No longer a secret, Sinclair has been commissioned to immortalize the beloved pets of patrons from well beyond the borders of her native San Diego. Her paintings grace walls from Los Angeles to Miami’s South Beach, and recent commissions have brought her work to London and Belgium.
Sinclair’s creativity and passion for her artistry are rooted in her fondness for the creatures that share our world, and this devotion extends beyond the brush. Sinclair has actively supported non-profit animal organizations and works closely with numerous animal welfare organizations in San Diego County. Her donated paintings are integral to the interior décor of the new San Diego Humane Society & SPCA facility, and she dedicates a percentage of the proceeds from her popular calendar to animal-related nonprofit organizations.
