Wild aHeart 
John R. A. Smith - Somerset Wildlife Artist

Builders of Bridges of Friendship & Love - Live a Life of Love: John R. A. Smith.



Wild at Heart Collection John R. A. Smith Artist.

My Art has sold in various locations across the globe

from Australia, Canada, 

United State America, to Thailand and including the 

United Kingdom.

Using mostly Faber-Castell - Coloured Pencils

Please feel free to enquire into the selling price should the work still be available.

I am not special in any way, my artwork is modest at best and thereapy for me during my

time of illness.

I also seek to be of benefit to my community and assist as I can considering my physical restrictions and 

support in raising much needed funds for a variety of projects.


My artwork will later be offered for sale with between 50% and possibly up to 100% of the profit being given directly to

a work of charity or within a local community. Possibly to support Wild Life or work in the community.

In the past, such causes as providing funding towards clean pumped drinking water for a village in Africa. 

Educational material for a school in India.

Helping a church in Glastonbury and another church in Martock in Somerset where they sought to serve the 

community, plus other good causes.

This way it cuts out the middle person and you know 50% or more of the profit from your purchase is used where it is 

most needed.

My Wild at Heart - Art 


John R. A. Smith - Somerset Wildlife Artist

My art these days is far from the fine art of my youth as my eyesight is not so good, however, it is therapy for me, and it helps me cope and focus my mind.

Below is a small sample of some of my artwork mostly from The Wild-at-Heart-Collection, although a few others have crept in over time.


Some of my work is now also used to create patterns and full 

embroidery or Cross-stitch Kits

visit the Art to Cross Stitch Page.

I do hope and Pray you enjoy my work.

A mile stone for me as my eyes are not so good these days.


My modest version of some of the beautiful buildings in West Coker Somerset.

I have created these as therapy and to relax my body and mind.

should you be interested I will sell a work of art

and raise money for our local community

offering the cottages and building artwork at a modest £35.00 each,
or whatever extra you would like to give, with £25.00 of the original asking price 

going back into our Community

 plus any extra if given.

It will go where it is needed, be it towards the Church Roof or

other Community Projects.

It costs just over £10.00 to create each Work
of Art

This covers paper, mounts, clear protective covers, mounting tape,

backing boards, and paints.

Although I apologise as my photo's do not do the artwork justice

they need to be seen in person.

This is only a small sample of what is available.


Cottage along Manor Road


This demonstrates the template process

First I take a photograph and edit it making modest changes

then I render the photo to a basic sketch & from there create a work of art

all hand painted as demonstrated above.
