Liz Clayton Fuller (2015)
Liz comes from a rigorous art background that includes a BFA in Illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design and a certificate in Natural Science Illustration from the University of Washington. But a deep, intrinsic love and respect for nature has always inspired her. She uses her skills to connect with the community and help others rekindle a sense of awe in the natural world. In recent years her artwork has focused on ornithology, and her internship at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology has strengthened her resolve to make ornithological illustration her life’s work.
As a Bartels Illustrator, she created over 50 illustrations for several Lab projects including BirdNotes 02: Attracting Hummingbirds, the Celebrate Urban Birds bird-ID guide, and Living Bird magazine. She also taught an undergraduate seminar on Natural Science Illustration to a group of Cornell freshmen in the Biology Scholars Program and then traveled with them to the Galapagos Islands where she helped them hone their artistic and observational skills through field sketching.
