Welcome to the Southern Ontario Nature & Science Illustrators!

Nature and Science Illustration is all around us. We see it in museums, nature centers, and zoos, on websites, posters & brochures, in textbooks, calendars, note cards, magazines or in any one of thousands of illustrated popular books for children and adults that capture the wonders of the natural world or explain the concepts of science. To communicate these ideas, science illustrators work with a wide range of people including scientists, educators, publishers, art directors, designers, and advertisers. Science illustrations demonstrate an exacting level of accuracy and faithfulness to the subject as well as a high degree of artistic skill and judgment in bringing the subject to life.
