The Zoologist Canvas

Custom Wildlife Artist 

My name is Emily Costello, and I am a wildlife artist and recent graduate zoology student living in Cornwall, UK.

This site is a space to showcase my latest wildlife artworks and other items for sale: prints, greeting cards and original paintings. 


My goal is to both provide beautiful artworks/gifts to hang in your homes, at the same time as raising awareness and funds for wildlife conservation charities.

I will also be highlighting the big positive steps we have already taken to protect the planet, the amazing work charities are doing, and other ways you can do your part for our planet in small achievable actions in my blog!

'Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.

- Dr Seuss. The Lorax



Examples of my artwork, including my British Wildlife collection and custom pet portraits. Much of my inspiration comes from the stunning Cornish Coast and the life it is home to.


 Giclée Prints, Original Paintings and Gifts/Cards are available from my shop or view my full portfolio gallery below.

The Zoologist's Blog

A collection of posts focused around wildlife conservation, small ways you can do your part for the planet, and just my day to day thoughts from Cornwall.





"I have bought a few paintings from Emily over the years, some for friends and some for myself. Every time I am amazed by her talent. She captures every pet perfectly and I will definitely be getting more!"

"Emily's work is just incredible, from her landscapes to her  wildlife art. Having worked in the shadow of St Michaels Mount for a good while, trying to find the perfect piece of art to commemorate that time but never really connected with any until now. Her Mount painting print sits as the centrepiece of our living room and never fails to mesmerise me, or anyone who comes to visit. "

Absolutely amazing. I highly recommend Emily. My bunny looks so real, it's almost like she took a photo of him. 100 stars and I will commission her again. Thank you!
