Discover the wonder of animals in this stunning exhibition by author and illustrator Tim Pond. Tim’s exquisite drawings and paintings detail the animal kingdom, from amphibians and reptiles, through to birds, and the power of big cats and blue whales.

Drawings of frogs

Tim’s artwork spans two decades of working in a wide range of different media. He is particularly recognised for his dip pen and ink work which has appeared in The Guardian and a wide range of publications. Sketching from nature has taken Tim from being an expedition artist in Alaska, to sketching leaves in a tropical forest in Mexico.

Tim regularly runs drawing classes at the RVC, the Zoological Society of London and independent art classes where live animals are the life models. Whether at zoos, farms or with live owls, museums or specimen drawing workshops, Tim enjoys communicating his infectious passion for the natural world, both artistic and scientific, blurring the lines between these two disciplines, as it was in the time of the Renaissance, in the age of discovery.
