Hello! My name is Arpita Choudhury and I am a freelance illustrator. My work is inspired by nature and the lighter side of life. Like roosters :)

The name fern spike comes from paleontology. An abundance of ferns can sometimes be found in the fossil record after a catastrophic event-thus a fern spike. Ferns are one of the first plants to appear to help a beleaguered ecosystem heal. There is always hope for a new day and a new beginning. Yes, I was a scientist in a former life.

I am open to commissions, collaborations, etc…
