About Brenda de Groot
Great to have you on my profile on WildHub.
I am Brenda, a passionate primatologist, artist and wildlife conservationist. I graduated from the MSc in Primate Conservation at Oxford Brookes University, where I specialised in the behaviour of colobines (leaf-eating monkeys) and conservation education.
Drawing has been my state of being for as long as I live. I've applied my illustrations in a whole range of settings, whether it be for decoration, education or activism. Soon after my graduation I became a self-employed illustrator and writer, mainly working for nature conservation NGO's, which I do for 5 years now.
This September I started a new adventure as a PhD researcher and teacher at Leiden University in The Netherlands. I am looking into the evolution of symbolic cognition and will study four species of primates (among which one hominid). I will continue my conservation art projects along with this.
If my profile sparked your interest for whatever good reason, please do not hesitate to drop me a line!
