Katrina van Grouw introduces her new book 'Unnatural Selection', a stunning illustrated book about selective breeding - the ongoing transformation of animals at the hand of man.
Katrina van Grouw (formerly Katrina Cook) has been a self-employed fine artist since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1992 where she gained an MA in Natural History Illustration for an illustrated thesis on bird anatomy for artists.
Although she has had no formal scientific training, Katrina’s ornithological knowledge, including skills as a specimen preparator and taxidermist, gained her a curatorial position in the bird skin collections at London’s Natural History Museum, based at Tring in Hertfordshire. She remained in this post for seven years before leaving in 2010 to concentrate on completing the book 'Unfeathered Bird', published in 2012.
