‘Snow Bunting, Helvellyn’ - Birds of the Fells Print by Dais SB Art

Dais SB Art


Snow Bunting over Helvellyn. This picture was painted with homemade watercolours and illustrated with pen. This is a wonderful medium sized bird that can only be seen in the winter at the top of a few fells in the Lake District, more commonly Helvellyn. It’s a winter visitor here, migrating from Scandinavia to escape their harsh winters. This Snow Bunting has been drawn in its winter colouration, which is how it would be seen in Cumbria, versus its black and white summer colouration.

Size : Mounted fine art giclee print and signed by the artist.

About Dais - My name is Dais Scott-Bennett and I am primarily an illustrator, focusing on the natural world and our native wildlife, soaking up my inspiration from the Lake District where I am lucky enough to live in Ambleside. I have longed to live in this area since I visited as a child, as I saw it as a landscape that is awe inspiring for those who love nature and art.

I recently graduated from my Degree in animal conservation and am currently working on my Master’s in museum studies, with a focus on natural science collections. My passion for biodiversity and our wildlife meant I developed my love for art as a tool for understanding the natural world. I love to create art that aims to inspire people with the beauty of the native wildlife we have here in the UK and especially here in Cumbria.

I mainly work in pen and ink, which I find very practical for working outside but I do love to experiment with all mediums and often introduce a bit of colour to my art with watercolours I make myself.
