About Little Plover

Little Plover was started in 2015 by Libby - an enthusiastic but amateurish birdwatcher.  At the time I depended on drawing the birds that I saw in order to commit them to memory, and eventually I turned those drawings into greetings cards with identification notes so that other people could use them too.

Since then, I am well on my way to becoming a qualified ecologist and now I use the knowledge that I have gained to create hundreds of illustrations of birds, insects and plants to spread the joy of nature! These cards are unique - using a blend of illustrations, wordplay and annotations you can not only get a nugget of nature-based information from each design, you get a beautifully crafted and sustainably produced piece of art that you can either send to spread the love, or keep for yourself!

Now, with over 5,000 greetings cards sold, you can buy Little Plover products in shops, garden centres and galleries across the UK including the RSPB, Turner Gallery and the Wildlife Trusts. Since 2015, I have licensed my illustrations to organisations such as the Museum of Rural Life and the White Mill Heritage Centre, illustrated a natural history book for HarperCollins and run illustration workshops for over 250 people.
I love illustrating wildlife, and I love turning those illustrations into greetings cards and stationery.  Learning about our environment has taken me on an incredible and exciting journey, I hope that, through the products that I make, you will join me on it!
