The Wander So Far...

The Wild Wander creates natural history inspired paper goods and gifts featuring the original artwork of Richmond, Virginia based illustrator Clara Cline. Following in the footsteps of early American naturalists, it's inspired by dusty libraries, cluttered studies full of artifacts, and an abiding curiosity for forgotten history and the natural world. 


I am a self-taught illustrator living in Richmond, Virginia with my husband, our two little wanderers, and pack of furry team members. I graduated from the University of Virginia with a philosophy degree, a wandering spirit, and a lifelong love of illustration - none of which I was quite sure what to do with. After working a series of office jobs I was able to turn my after hours passion into my day job, and have been wandering my way through creative small business since. I'm a nature enthusiast, love poring over antiquarian ephemera, the changing seasons, and probably read too many young adult books about kids getting locked in natural history museums and libraries overnight.
