Anna Koska is a published freelance illustrator of some 25 years, specialising in fruit, vegetables and the natural world,and to date has illustrated in excess of 100 books. As well as book illustration, Anna regularly receives commissions from chefs, authors and restauranteurs for food and botanical art.

Anna works in watercolour, pen & ink, oils and, most recently, egg tempera. Her methods may vary but the joy of her artwork is constant; each piece she creates is a celebration of the fruit, vegetable or animal she has captured with her inimitable flare, which has secured her place as one of the UK’s leading natural history illustrators.

She lives in East Sussex, with her husband and three children. Along with her illustrating business, she grows an overly ambitious quantity of veg, and cares for three hives and chickens; she forest-runs, cycles and is rather fervent in her efforts to supply the family with homemade ‘everything’.
