This 3 colour screen print is inspired by the 1850 engraving 'Monster Soup commonly called Thames Water' by William Heath, a satire of a microscopic examination by Arthur Hassell of the water supplied to the inhabitants of London portraying the ‘monsters’ found in a drop of water from the Thames. Just 50 years ago, the Thames was so polluted it was declared "biologically extinct", too dirty for anything to survive there. But sightings of various marine mammals and other species over the last few years confirm that the river is springing back to life.
There have been regular sightings of harbour and grey seals, dolphins and harbour porpoises, and of course the ill-fated journey into the Thames by the ‘River Thames Whale’ (northern bottlenose whale ) in 2006.

Anna Walsh is a British Artist whose work investigates the relationship humans have with animals and nature. She practices traditional style illustrations and techniques to convey an accurate representation, while drawing on popular culture and approaches to present a contemporary slant to her work. She mainly uses drawing, watercolours, oil paints and screen prints, as well as digital media and book arts. Although her work is heavily influenced by natural history illustrations, the content is somewhat less scientific and more concentrated on the social roles of animals in our lives. She is a founding member of the art collective Garudio Studiage, for whom she designs and makes various products for sale, (which are sold in gallery shops and boutiques including The Museum of London, The British Library and The South London Gallery) or works on larger commissions alongside the other members. She has had several solo exhibitions at Westbourne Grove Church Art Space, and has work in collections such as Tate Gallery London Artists' Book Collection as well as various private collections.
