  • Jane Rohling says:

    Hello TVAA members, I am looking for potential illustrators who might be interested in working with me occasionally on interpretive projects. I an an interpretive planner/designer/writer/photographer and much of my work is interpretive trail, scenic byway signage and small exhibit projects related to natural and cultural history, recreation and tourism. I occasionally need an illustrator for projects and the ones I’ve worked with in the past are mostly retired now. So, I’m looking for talent. You must be able to illustrate interpretive text on a variety of subjects with attention to scientific and historical accuracy being very important. Sometimes I might want line art, but usually I will be looking for full-color illustrations (the original artwork could be in a variety of media–acrylic, watercolor, oils, etc.) I’m working on a couple of proposals NOW that have to be submitted very SOON, there may be other opportunities in the future. If you’re interested in learning more, please email me at or call me at 208-938-3529 (home/office). I look forward to finding some great new collaborators!
