About Talking Animals

Tamzin - founder Talking Animals

Art for Animals

Talking Animals was created many years ago and has evolved with me. It has always been about animals, our connection with them and how we can improve their lives. I am a psychologist by training and have spent many years with different animals studying their behaviour and our relationship with them.  I now combine my science and my illustration to give back to animals. I draw animals, people and environments and how these interact.  I tell stories through my art and am professional at showing subtle narratives through images and characters I create.  I am experienced in the publishing of both scientific literature and picture books.  Through my illustrations I bring other worlds and points of view to life.  Whether it is a fantasy world or the fantastic world of nature and animals, my strength lies in visual communication and story telling is my speciality.  A most important part of Talking Animals is also giving back to help animals.  I donate to various animal groups.  Please visit the 'Causes' page to learn more about some amazing people and animals. My illustrations can be purchased for personal use, editorial, licensing and publishing. Monies raised support my ongoing research to improve the welfare of animals.

I have published illustrations in both academic and picture book publications.  My artwork has also been published on greeting cards distributed nationally throughout Australia. As an author I have published research on our relationship with cats, how male free-ranging humpback dolphins carry objects as well as fiction, picture books and graphic novels.

Thanks for stopping by.
