Dr Dafila Scott
Dafila is one of our foremost wildlife artists. Her connection with the Antarctic stems from her grandfather, Captain Robert Falcon Scott, as indeed does her passion for wildlife. In his final letter to his wife Scott asked of his son, Peter, “Make him interested in natural history” - a trait evidently passed down to the next generation. In 2012 Dafila was Artist in Residence for the Scott Polar Research Institute, travelling to Antarctica to capture the wildlife and scenery on canvas.
