A brief introduction - Carl Conway

I have been an art director, graphic designer for 30 years and more recently producing natural history illustrations and fine art paintings.


My passion for drawing and painting started at school when I  first became interested in natural history, astronomy, paleontology and geological subjects, igniting a life-long fascination for these subjects which continues to this day. This has influenced me to study for a BSc in Natural Science with the Open University, in which I am pursuing a specialism in Earth Sciences and will graduate in 2017.


The amalgamation of these interests and skills have lead me down the path of illustration, a small collection of which I hope you enjoy on this site.  


I would like to continue developing myself as an illustrator and would love to expand on the variety of subjects within natural history illustration. If there any publishers, agencies or individuals who would like to collaborate on any illustration project, I would be pleased to hear from you and discuss the project in mind.


Portraits for pets is also an area I am keen to develop, with a selection of portraits which you can view on this site.
