I work in two different styles for my nature illustration. One is a a more contemporary, whimsical style drawing from vintage fairy tale illustrations, and folk art, the other is 'playful realism', depicting subjects with more accurate observation, but with a playful edge. I usually determine which is better to use after getting a feel for what the text or project needs. I can also create line and dotwork drawings and sketches for book interiors and as decorative elements.
