In this Earth Day celebration Jane Kim and Thayer Walker discuss their current and future work.

Jane Kim, artist and Thayer Walker, writer, Ink Dwell studio creates art that explores the wonders of the natural world. Merging classical techniques of science illustration with modern fine art, we create public and private commissions, illustrations, exhibitions and much more.

Ink Dwell makes everyday places special and enhances iconic locations with wondrous imagery.
