Living by the coast as I do, fishing is a big part of my family’s lifestyle and we love to eat a variety of local, sustainable fresh seafood.
As an illustrator, one of my favourite subjects to draw is marine life. Their texture, shape and colour are a joy to explore. My art process starts by gathering references from a combination of life sketches and photographs.
My illustrations for the Port to Plate Seafood Cookbook depict a variety of marine species using a scientific graphite drawing technique. I have appreciated this opportunity to revisit the beauty and simplicity of black and white scientific studies for this book.
