My name is Tabitha McBain and I live in West Sussex, England, I have  always been interested in the natural world and have been drawing and painting animals since childhood. I was a self taught and self employed  taxidermist for 15 years before moving on to sculpting animals in clay

 My  highly decorative and richly illustrated originals are painted in gouache and gilded with 24 ct gold leaf and are inspired by medieval illuminated manuscripts and bestiaries.

I also illustrate botanical and scientific subjects.

I decorate , paint and fire traditional delft style tiles.
