Natural History Illustration

Natural history has always been a great source of inspiration for my practice. I am most at home in the dimly lit corridors of a natural history exhibit with my moleskine and mechanical pencil, studying the fascinating creatures housed there, or crouched in a local park drawing an interesting fungus I've stumbled upon. Below is a selection of my museum studies alongside my professional illustration work, including selected illustrations from Birdsong in a Time of Silence (Penguin Random House, 2021) and The Wren: A Biography (Penguin Square Peg, 2018).
