Jules Chabeaux – Wildlife Artist

Jules Chabeaux is an intuitive wildlife artist based in rural Derbyshire, UK. Jules was always instinctively drawn to draw, paint and help protect animals. She even sacrificed a top art grade, refusing to include the range of different art, proudly exhibiting her portfolio of animal art. At 16 she earned her first paid art commission. Unable to imagine earning a living from art at this young age, however, Jules felt her only option was to “get a real job” leaving her true passions behind.

Her transition into the corporate world took her far from animals and art into a consumerist world, working in the retail and then banking sector, where she found solace from specialising in human potential, learning and leadership, delving deeply into our human ability to create our dreams. She quickly rose through the ranks, traveling the world and learning a great deal. Yet her heart longed to reconnect with her passion for animals and gradually she realised that she had to make a profound change to her life to bring her much closer to her true purpose.

So in 2010 she bravely left this successful career, retraining as an animal communicator (an amazing practice of heart-based communication with animals, learning to quiet your mind and open your heart, tuning into their thoughts and feelings) and a Usui Reiki animal healer (an ancient Japanese energy healing modality). She published her first book, “The Purpose of Species – Animal Messages for Humanity in 2012 and Beyond” and co-founded an international conference “Awakening to Animals”. In 2015 she became UK Director for the Global White Lion Protection Trust for three years, before finally returning, jubilantly, to her wildlife art.

Jules now works as a full-time freelance wildlife artist, completely dedicated to creating art that captures the hearts and souls of her collectors.  A passionate wildlife conservationist Jules donates at least 10% of all her art sales and works to support great organisations that are working hard to protect these wild beings in their natural habitats.
