Here is a little more about Susan Sparks:
Susan Sparks is an illustrator living in Newcastle on Australia's east coast. Inspired by the astounding natural beauty of Australia and its wild creatures, the subject matter of her drawing is the amazing flora and fauna of the country's mountains, forests, plains, seas, lakes, swamps, rivers, beaches, suburbs and parks. Exclusively graphite pencil on paper, the unique original drawings each take up to 900 hours to complete. The prints faithfully reproduce every complex intricate detail of the originals and are a heartfelt expression of Sparks' appreciation for the incredible beauty of all living things.
