Lorna Scobie

  • 5 stars across 10 books

   Lorna Scobie   grew up in the depths of the English countryside, climbing trees and taking her rabbit for walks in the fields. She is an illustrator and designer, now based in south London. Growing up surrounded by nature has heavily influenced her illustrations and her work often revolves around the natural world and animal kingdom.

 

 Lorna draws every day, and always has a sketchbook close to hand when she's out and about, just in case. She illustrates her work by hand rather than digitally, as she enjoys the spontaneity and also the 'happy mistakes' that can happen along the way. Her favourite places to draw are museums and botanical gardens.
