Natural History, inc. nature journal style

My natural history illustration encompasses insects, birds, birds’ eggs, and botanical subjects. These range from pencil drawings to beautifully simple pen and ink drawings, to highly detailed paintings, to a looser ‘nature journal’ style. To discuss a commission to accompany editorial magazine or book work, to use on advertising or packaging, or to illustrate factual information, please email me.
