LUCY NEWTON is a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art, where she specialised in Visual Communication (Illustration). She is fascinated by the natural world and spends large amounts of time outdoors, observing and recording native Scottish wildlife.
She describes how she works. ‘I enjoy combining and playing with various media to try to capture just a fraction of the beauty of my subjects. I do not attempt to document the birds and animals in exact realism, but more to just express some of the qualities and energy of the amazing natural world around us’.
