Commissioned Frog Art by Jay Manchand

I am Jay Manchand, an Amphibian Conservation Artist. I spent much of my childhood searching for amphibians in my back garden, a curiosity that would ignite a passion for a species in danger. I had always found myself studying, drawing and painting frogs, lizards and all kinds of cold blooded creatures. Though my fascination with these incredible animals was clearly reflected in my art, I pursued a bachelors degree (and subsequently a Masters Degree) in Fine Art in order to discover why I had such an affiliation to amphibians and how my art could be used to benefit a species in plight. Many of my illustrations depict amphibians whose conservation status ranges from Least Concern through to Critically Endangered. Through my art, I hope my passion can inspire the same adoration for frogs that I have, and that I can bring the immediacy of threatened species to an audience that are perhaps unaware of the damage we are causing our cold blooded friends through habitat destruction, deforestation & the illegal pet trade.

After completing my Masters Degree, I am now beginning to reach out to conservationists, zoologists and scientists alike in hope of working together to produce innovative new work that can aid the progression of amphibian conservation – whether that is through illustrations for publications, colouring books or other exciting concepts. As an artist using traditional media, I believe my art can be used as a platform to communicate ideas of a scientific nature in a visually appealing, relatable manner.

Along with existing artwork available to purchase, I am open for commissionable projects. Prices are dependent on sizes, mediums and timeframes, so please contact me to discuss your project ideas. I sincerely hope you enjoy my work and I look forward to hearing from you.
