Violet Astor

Violet Astor is a UK based conservation artist who produces large and detailed charcoal drawings combined with natural pigments foraged from the environment of her subjects. 

Astor travels to the wild corners of the planet to collaborate with wildlife conservation projects. Through her portrayals of endangered species she raises awareness and funding to support their survival. Astor is a self-taught artist who discovered drawing during the years she was chronically ill with Lyme Disease. It became an integral part of her healing process.
