Natalya Zahn is a natural illustrator and designer deeply inspired by all things animal. Originally from the green mountains of Vermont, she studied illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design. Well-versed in traditional and digital media, and passionate about biology, zoology and anatomy, she has collaborated on projects with clients including the Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology, National Geographic and McSweeney’s.
A traveler with a love of exotic natural history, Natalya has sketched kangaroos in the outback of Australia, observed rare Takake birds in their native New Zealand, and scoured Tokyo fish markets for marine inspiration. She is also a storyteller - her naturalist’s blog, www.iheartungulates.com explores the intersections of art, design and science through illustration, photography and writing.
