Beth began working as a wildlife illustrator after gaining her BA Hons degree in Graphic Design and Illustration from Norwich University of the Arts in 2009. Producing composite and spot illustrations for various wildlife publications including The Wildlife Trust and Natur Cymru magazines as well as illustrated maps for interpretation panels and tourist information leaflets.
Drawing and wildlife have been consistent interests and passions from childhood, developing her skills in accurately capturing animals from a young age by observing and sketching around her childhood home in Mid Wales, influenced and encouraged by her parents dedication to wildlife conservation.
Today Beth is still constantly observing and absorbing the shapes and details of animals, plants and trees and this knowledge is reflected in her ability to capture accurate shape and movement in her sketches. She produces illustrations in graphite pencils, pen, coloured pencils and watercolour, taking time to research and reference each species to ensure accuracy for identification purposes. Her loose, fluid style adds movement and character and combined with her eye for good composition she creates pleasing and effective yet informative illustrations.
