About the artist: Adrian Ventura is an artist and illustrator living in Brighton. His passion is wildlife and he originally studied wildlife illustration and digital design at Carmarthen College in Wales.
Adrian's grandfather was a big influence to him as a child growing up. Being a keen amateur wildlife artist and cartoonist, he helped to inspire Adrian's love of nature and the arts.
More recently, some of Adrian's work has been published in the New Talent section of the Association of Illustrators publication, 'Images 36'. It is Britain's only jury-selected illustration competition and has very stringent criteria for submission.
