Artists

Kim Atkinson RCA

Artist and naturalist, Kim Atkinson (b.1962) lives on the westernmost tip of Pen Llŷn in North Wales, an environment that provides abundant inspiration for her work. It is here that Kim delights in ‘crawling around’ in wild

spaces, drawing the rare and beautiful species that thrive near her home.

Daniel Cole

Artist and naturalist, Daniel Cole (b.1965) lives in Cornwall. Surrounded by wildlife and stunning countryside. He has been interested in nature for as long as he can remember

Wynona Legg

Artist and conservationist, Wynona Legg (b.1990), places drawing from nature at the heart of her practice. 

Julia Manning RE

Somerset-based artist, Julia Manning (b.1952), spends time observing the natural world, translating these experiences into fascinating artwork. Her greatest passion is printmaking, enjoying nothing more than whittling a plate to the sounds of her radio.

Jill Moger

Ceramicist, Jill Moger (b.1946), spent her post-war childhood playing in Epping Forest - a woodland filled with creatures that Jill sometimes took home in jars! Jill always loved drawing and later, as a mother of four, her love of making art and the natural world came together in a celebrated ceramics practice.

Nik Pollard RCA

Artist and naturalist,

Nik Pollard (b. 1970), began his observations of nature on the marshes in Kent, where he grew up. He now lives in Bristol. As well as engaging with projects further afield, he is always keen to learn about the nature on his doorstep.

Greg Poole

Artist and naturalist, Greg Poole (1960–2018), 

was respected for his depth of knowledge and expressive visual responses to the natural world. His observations of nature, through drawing and painting in the field, were later reimagined into monotypes and relief prints in his Bristol studio.

Louise Scammell

Printmaker and diver Louise Scammel (b.1960) made a deep connection with the sea during a childhood of rockpooling, fishing and diving on the south coast of England. Her carefully observed and sensitive artwork is made in response to the extraordinary beauty and diversity of the marine wildlife she encounters.
