The expedition artist is a term for someone who is creatively working while traveling
and exploring nature. Carol Wellart is a Czech illustrator, constantly on the road with her partner and photographer Paul Schlemmer. She’s inspired by everyday outside stuff. The mountain character is an often-repeated theme in her art, and she and Paul are both searching for new impulses in this enviroment. Exploring the world wilderness, studying animals and surviving in the Earth’s oldest reliefs brings Carol’s work to life.

Juliet Kemp lives in London, UK with her partners, kid, and dog. She is fortunate enough to be able to see the Thames out of her window when writing, which is either inspiring, distracting, or both. When she’s not writing or running round the house trying to keep up with the kid, she reads a lot, drinks too much tea, makes things out of yarn and fabric, and goes climbing a bit less often than she would like. She blogs intermittently at http://julietkemp.com and tweets at @julietk.
