The best place to see a cormorant is drying itself off by a big body of water, often majestically holding its wings out in the sun. This was created using a dip-pen and ink with a wash of homemade watercolurs, with the embossed gold oval hand applied by the artist.

About Dais - My name is Dais Scott-Bennett and I am primarily an illustrator, focusing on the natural world and our native wildlife, soaking up my inspiration from the Lake District where I am lucky enough to live in Ambleside. I have longed to live in this area since I visited as a child, as I saw it as a landscape that is awe inspiring for those who love nature and art.
I recently graduated from my Degree in animal conservation and am currently working on my Master’s in museum studies, with a focus on natural science collections. My passion for biodiversity and our wildlife meant I developed my love for art as a tool for understanding the natural world. I love to create art that aims to inspire people with the beauty of the native wildlife we have here in the UK and especially here in Cumbria.
I mainly work in pen and ink, which I find very practical for working outside but I do love to experiment with all mediums and often introduce a bit of colour to my art with watercolours I make myself.
