About me
Bethan is a Wales based illustrator that has the passion for animals and nature, which shines through her illustrations. Nature has always been her subject matter and a place that sparks her creativity, inspiring her style of detailed line work created with fine liners. Through her illustrations she captures the patterns and details of nature and animals, showing their beauty through black and white illustrations with the rarity of colour. Anything that nature has to offer, Bethan is all over it and loves to use her passion for nature as the forefront of her illustration designs. With this in mind, she uses the power of her illustrations to help campaign awareness of the distribution of nature and the endangerment of animals.

    Swansea, United Kingdom
    I studied illustration for three years at University of Wales Trinity Saint David, Coleg of Arts, where I got experience of working under briefs and deadlines that would be required from a client. Here I was able to better my skills as an illustrator and find my own style and work on my digital skills through the Adobe suite. I was able to carry out all my research for my own briefs and research for which fields of illustration are out there and where my work fits best.
