Sophie Webb is a wildlife artist, biologist, illustrator and author of children’s books living in Felton, CA. She has co-authored field guides on birds and marine mammals and written and illustrated three  children’s books about research projects. The basis of most of Sophie’s work is observation and field sketching, combined frequently with  looking at museum specimens and photographs; in particular for the field guide plates that she paints. Her travels as a biologist and artist studying and painting birds have taken her from the Amazon to the Arctic and Antarctic.
