David Koster studied for three years at the Slade School of Art. He is a well-known and extremely accomplished printmaker specialising in natural history subjects. David is a founder member of the Society of Wildlife Artists and has exhibited there regularly for many years as well as at The Royal Academy, London.

David has undertaken several illustration commissions including work for the RSPB and a front cover for their ‘Birds’ Magazine. He has also illustrated ‘Down to Earth’ by John Stewart Collis with wood engravings plus ‘Fellow Mortals’, an anthology of animal poetry, with ink drawings.

He is an extremely knowledgeable naturalist with his work stemming from precise observation and study of his subjects inspired by time spent in Folkestone and Plockton, a village in the northwest Highlands.

“I find the different print media particularly suitable for the depiction of wildlife, despite the technical difficulties they present and the hard physical work involved. Plus I find the need to make drawn and coloured studies from life and gather reference material a satisfying discipline.”
