Lizzie Harper is a free-lance natural history and botanical illustrator. Her passion for the natural world combines with her scientific training to allow her to illustrate plants, animals, and biological subjects accurately and with enthusiasm.
Clients include publishers, wildlife charities, zoos, packaging companies, ad agencies and she willingly undertakes commissions for private individuals. She also runs occasional workshops, helping people learn to draw plants and flowers.
Her favourite subjects this year seem to be beetles and mosses; and current projects include work for BBC Countryfile magazine, illustrations for “Foraging with Kids” by Adele Nozedar, and a series of information panels for Norfolk County Council.
Lizzie is perhaps best known for her sketchbook illustrations that appear in “The Hedgerow Handbook” (also by Adele). She lives very happily in Hay on Wye with her long suffering husband and two children.
