About Me

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

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…
