Echidna and orchid by Laura Grogan

Currently unavailable for purchase

Black ink and pencil on Canson drawing paper. Original approximate size 200 × 120mm.

I’m passionate about ecology, wildlife epidemiology and environmental conservation. I hope that I can raise awareness about the conservation of biodiversity through my art and research (currently researching the devastating fungal disease, chytridiomycosis, which is threatening frogs worldwide). Help spread the word about conservation!

    Very nice. you are so clever ;)

  • Hey thanks! I must admit, I have a special place in my heart for the busy little echidnas that mischeviously pull stones out of our rock walls, and then waddle away in surprise when discovered! :)

  • Thanks! It was a challenge to do the fur in between the spines, to be honest… :)
