Robert Cook

After graduating in scientific illustration in 1985, I worked as an illustrator specialising in portraying nature.  As well as illustrating, for many years I have enjoyed sharing my knowledge of drawing, painting, and fascination with nature as a lecturer in scientific illustration. 

Now working in Lancashire as a wildlife artist, my practice draws inspiration from the surrounding countryside from which I create narratives of birds in their habitat.  I am fascinated by the interplay of light, texture, and colour while looking to show true aspects of behaviour and interactions within 'natural' landscape.  
My art continues to evolve as I explore artistic technique, and increase my understanding of nature in the landscape.

Throughout my career I have exhibited in many exhibitions both here in the UK and the USA, regularly winning awards for my work.
