Pedro Fernandes is a freelance wildlife illustrator. Born in Lisbon, Pedro earned a degree in Earth Sciences, and later studied Science Illustration at the University of California, Santa Cruz and at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. As a child, Pedro wanted to be a condor when he grew up. Having failed at that, he settled for becoming a wildlife illustrator. He loves watching birds, drawing birds, and going places to see birds―his pretext to explore the natural world and an endless source of amazement and discovery. Pedro lives in Morocco.
