Millie Marotta


I spend my days creating intricate nature based illustrations for my colouring books and other exciting projects from my studio by the sea in a little corner of West Wales. Growing up on a smallholding in the hills of rural Wales as a child I was surrounded by nature in all its glorious forms. It was during these early years that I developed a bit of an obsession with the animal kingdom and later went on to study Wildlife Illustration. This fascination with the natural world remains at the core of my work today as does a love of pattern and intricate detail. Above all else my intention is simply to create beautiful work, which both captivates and charms.
