Lorna Mulligan, London Member Since March 2012 Artist Statement I am an artist/illustrator and i've been drawing and painting since being knee high to a grasshopper, and though I've dabbled with many different subjects over the years, I've always enjoyed drawing wildlife the most.
I initally completed an art & design foundation course before moving into the animation industry, where I worked for several years on various film and television commercials. It was during this time that I gained an invaluable wealth of knowledge and experience which has certainly helped and influenced the work I am producing now.
After leaving Animation, I finally fullfilled an ambition I've had for a long time and went off to study Children's Book Illustration at Chelsea College of Art and Design, and It was also about this time that I decided to develop a range of Limited Edition giclee prints from several of my wildlife illustrations produced from some of my book projects. These prints proved to be quite popular, so i've gradually extended the range for sale from my website, and also use the artwork of the Open Editions, for gift products and greeting cards.
I'm having fun with the work I'm doing at the moment, so I consider myself very lucky that I'm able to combine an interest in the natural world, with illustration and photography in such an enjoyable and creative way !
