Profile

I'm a free-lance natural science/ botanical illustrator working for publishers, environmental bodies, charities, packaging companies, ad agencies, and postage stamp publishers. I work traditionally, by hand, in watercolour, pen and ink, and graphite. I'm always open to new clients and fresh commissions, and would love to hear from you if you have a project you feel my work would be appropriate for. I have an online library of over 900 illustrations available for licensed re-use, please go to http://www.lizzieharper.co.uk/index.gallery.php to browse. My work appears in books ranging from Streeters "HarperCollins Flower Guide" to Adele Nozedar's "Hedgerow Handbook" and "Garden Forager" all the way through to adult colouring in books. I live happily in the beautiful Welsh border town of Hay on Wye with a long-suffering husband, two children, and a wide assortment of skulls, sketchbooks, and dead bugs.
