Rhyll Plant

Born at Phillip Island, Australia, Rhyll Plant’s early association with natural history was stimulated by her close proximity to the sea and her parent’s particular interest in marine zoology. A youthful love of art and museums led to a full time career as technician and scientific illustrator with the then National Museum of Victoria. Decades later and Rhyll lives in country Victoria, is an Honorary Associate of Museum Victoria where she continues to illustrate scientific publications, and has widely practised and taught the printmaking skills she learned while undertaking a Masters degree in visual art at LaTrobe University, Bendigo. Rhyll’s passion for wood engraving emerged through the teachings of sculptor and engraver Tim Jones, and now sees her primarily incising and printing from Tasmanian Huon Pine. Illustration, science and humour inspire her imagery.
