Illustrator gives presentation to Rotary club
Artist and illustrator Ms Nicole Berlach recently gave a presentation to the members of the Rotary Club of Umina Beach.
Ms Berlach specialises in scientific illustrations, children's books and water colours.
Her scientific work has been published in Australia, Germany, Norway and the United States of America.
She has also produced a range of prints, greeting cards and tea towels featuring natural history and her scientific work.
Nicole told the club she did art classes at school and then travelled around Australia developing a specialisation in detailed drawings which include precise details of animals, fish, insects and floral specimens, capturing the minute differences between species.
She then did a university degree to further her skills and qualifications as a scientific illulstrator.
"The exactitude of her work means it is of a quality that can be published in scientific journals," said Rotary club newsletter editor Mr Rod Radford.
Ms Berlach also conducts bush walks and encourages others to record what they see.
She has also self-published books of short stories.
