Madelyn Neufeld is a science illustrator, graphic designer, animator, and artist with a background in biology. She creates art as a way to share nature’s many curiosities and mysteries. She is currently based in Fresno, CA, and has just finished a graduate program in science illustration at California State University, Monterey Bay.
Initially, her passion for nature led her to study biology. She participated in a research lab collecting crabs from under rocks and analyzing those crabs’ hemolymph in a lab for amounts of egg-laying protein. The narrow specificity of scientific research led her to realize that it was nature’s broad diversity that held her heart.
Now, as an illustrator, Madelyn enjoys learning about a range of topics, from the far reaches of space to the tiny worlds of the moss and insects that she collects. She uses visual media to show subjects that are small, far away, unusual, or complicated. Her illustrations highlight diversity in the natural world and explain concepts that cannot be captured in one photograph. Creating artwork inspires her to explore the natural world and she hopes her art inspires others to do the same.
