Rosie Lewis

Hello! My name is Rosie and I have a passion for the natural world. I’ve always had a deep fascination for Australia’s fauna and flora, and their complex interactions within the magnificent ecosystems of Australia. Living amongst the bush in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, I am continually inspired by the often overlooked details of ecosystem dynamics. My university studies in Animal Behaviour are providing me the scientific knowledge that underpins my artwork and an appreciation for our critical role in conservation. I have the privilege of working for a wildlife education company alongside a team of wildlife demonstrators, teaching people about Australia’s animals and their habitats, including some of the country’s most vulnerable species. This role motivates me to use my art to continue to educate and inspire others. 

The Biophilia Project arose from my belief that art holds a critical role in connecting people to nature, and through this contribute to the conservation of the natural world. I hope that through The Biophilia Project, I can share my passion and appreciation for Australian wildlife in its incredible beauty and diversity. 

And in the words of my greatest inspiration; Sir David Attenborough, 

“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.”
