Henrietta Mooney

I have been fortunate to have lived on the northern beaches of Sydney and amongst the wheat plains of the Hunter Valley, enjoying nature in a vast array of environments. Now settled in Newcastle, and enrolled in the Bachelor of Natural History Illustration at the University of Newcastle, immersed in creative practice.

I have worked as an Ecologist since 1995 but decided it was time to fulfil a dream of transitioning into a Natural History Illustrator, documenting Australia’s unique flora and fauna in a different way, inspired by other Natural History Illustrators such as Ferdinand Bauer.

My passion extends to the visual representation of scientific concepts so that everyone has access to the wonders of science.
