Natural Science illustration

Nora Sherwood holds a professional certificate in Natural Science Illustration. She works for a variety of clients in government, museums and consumer products.

Intricate details and patterns found in nature are endlessly fascinating to her. Watercolor is her primary medium and allows her to construct illustrations in layers, always considering pigment characteristics and color theory to build forms and create depth. In addition to watercolor, she also works extensively with colored pencils, pen and ink, graphite and scratchboard.
