Olly and Suzi, Olly Williams and Suzi Winstanley, are two British artists who specialise in collaborative painting of wildlife.


Olly and Suzi originally began working together after meeting as students at Saint Martin's School of Art in 1987,[1] and graduated together with a joint degree.[2] Their collaborative mode of working became established during a scholarship to Syracuse University in New York State during the period 1988 to 1989.[3]

Since 1993, they have taken part in more than 50 expeditions to remote regions of the Earth to paint predators and prey at close proximity in their natural habitats.[3] In some works they solicit "assistance" from the subject in the form of pawprints or bite-marks.[2] Their joint work has been exhibited internationally in galleries including the Simon Dickinson[4] and Briggs Robinson[5] galleries in New York, and the Natural History Museum in London.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Winstanley currently lives with English musician Damon Albarn with whom she has a child called Missy.[6]
