About me

Kia ora, I am Margaret Tolland, a seasoned illustrator and artist from Aotearoa, New Zealand.  I'm inspired by all aspects of nature and the process of illustration involves lots of research, so I get to learn all about the many different creatures I paint, from the Powelliphanta - a native giant snail - to the plover bird that cleans the teeth of the gigantic Nile crocodile. I delight in the rich detail, colour and textures that are found in nature.
