About the Artist
Hello, I'm Nathalie Aall, I was inspired to start Aall Forms of Life as my approach for meshing biology and art to communicate the beauty and importance of the natural world.
As a wildlife biologist, I have been fortunate enough to conduct research in remote rainforests all over the world to observe unbelievably beautiful forms of life. Knowing that I couldn't give these complex and unique creatures justice with a simple photograph, I delved into the art of scientific illustration and obtained my graduate certificate in Natural Science Illustration in 2016.
With Aall Forms of Life I drive to create works that can help increase public awareness of often overlooked animals and encourage sustainability and conservation efforts in viewers both young and old.
