Liz Clayton Fuller

Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, Liz is an accomplished scientific illustrator and fine artist. She holds a BFA in illustration with a minor in art history from Savannah College of Art and Design and a certificate in natural science illustration from the University of Washington.

Liz served a Bartels Scientific Illustration Internship at Cornell University’s Lab of Ornithology, where she contributed illustrations for papers by post-doctoral students. She has also served as an art and illustrating teacher to Cornell ornithology students, traveling with them to the Galapagos, where the birds and other creatures have so little fear of humans that they are easier to sketch in the field there than in any other location in the world.

Liz’s work is suffused with her love of nature. Constantly inspired by the natural world, she approaches her subjects with the wonder of first discovery and works meticulously to document them accurately. Through her illustrations she strives to provide her viewers with a new perspective on animal life.
