I came across the clouded leopard on a visit to Thrigby Hall. It was the first time I had seen one. The leopard mesmerised me and I was captivated to capture its beauty. Finding out the species was threatened only made me more determined to highlight this leopard. As an artist inspired by nature, I feel it has been my duty to make people look and take notice. Set against the urban backdrop, the leopard's future is hanging.

Evi Antonio was born and grew up in North London, surrounded by an urban landscape. She dreamt of the countryside and nature, fascinated and immersed in the images of natural history books. After graduating, Evi worked for many years as a natural history illustrator on many publications, using traditional watercolour techniques. Embracing new technology to express her vision, Evi combined digital painting with hand finished and glazed prints, using the highest quality fine art paper in small editions or one-of-a-kind pieces.
