This original orangutan painting was a finalist in the Wildlife Artist of the Year 2022 competition. It was exhibited alongside the other finalist pieces in a stunning exhibition of wildlife art from all around the world. The painting raised £775 for the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation to support their wildlife conservation of endangered species across Asia and Africa. “Hold Me Closer” is a beautiful and touching piece that tugs on the heartstrings. This unique orangutan painting captures perfectly the intense feeling of love between a mother and her baby.


** This piece has now sold. However limited edition prints are still available. **

This original orangutan painting was hand crafted in chalk pastels on Pastelmat paper by wildlife artist Naomi Jenkin. The artwork was been drawn with meticulous attention to detail, and in gorgeous vibrant colours. The whole piece feels alive with emotion.

The size of the painting is A2 (59.4cm x 42cm).

The artwork is hand signed on the front, and is titled and signed on the reverse by Naomi Jenkin.

This original orangutan painting comes unframed and unmounted as standard. I always include some useful information with the art to help you get it framed properly.

I also offer a professional framing service on request for an extra cost. I use an excellent framer who I’ve worked with for years, and his workmanship is second to none. I can have your framing tailored to your requirements, so that your original art is presented beautifully just how you’d like it! You can learn more about this option on my Framing Service page. If you’d like to discuss your framing options, please get in touch.

Please note: My professional framing service is ONLY available to clients who are able to collect their original art in person from my studio near Newquay, Cornwall, UK. This is because I can’t ship anything containing glass.


If you are purchasing this artwork as a surprise gift for a loved one and have any special requests, please let me know. I can work with you to maintain the element of surprise! You may have a preferred contact method or delivery address, or you may want it gift wrapped. Or perhaps you’d like to collect your artwork in person with your loved one, so that you can both meet the artist and see where your beautiful art was made! Just get in touch to discuss your requirements and I’ll be happy to help!


Limited edition prints of this touching orangutan painting are also available to purchase.
