I am a…
I am a science illustrator who loves to create art as a way to share nature’s many curiosities and mysteries. I am currently based in New Haven, CT.
Building on my background of biology and science illustration, I create figures, illustrations, animations, graphs, posters, paintings and more to help communicate science. My clients include scientists, non-profits, scientific journals, and nature lovers of all kinds.
Most of my work is done digitally in Photoshop, Illustrator, or AfterEffects, but I also create paintings with watercolor, gouache, and acrylic. Nature journalling and plein air painting are two of my current obsessions.
Initially, my passion for nature led me to study biology and research crab physiology. The narrow specificity of scientific research led me to realize that it was nature’s broad diversity that held my heart.
Now, as an illustrator, I enjoy learning about a range of topics, from the far reaches of space to the tiny worlds of the moss and insects that she collects. I use visual media to show subjects that are small, far away, unusual, or complicated.
My illustrations highlight diversity in the natural world and explain concepts that cannot be captured in one photograph. Creating artwork inspires me to explore the natural world and I hope my art inspires others to do the same.
