MAKING LEARNING VISUAL

 

Being able to incorporate animals into a career filled with art and learning are my main goals in life. As a science illustrator, I aim to educate as well as invoke interest and appreciation for science and the natural world through my artwork. I specialize in projects pertaining to zoology, evolutionary biology, natural science, veterinary medicine, and animal science.

 

When not working in my studio, I can be found wherever animals are. Whether it be out hiking and hoping to catch a glimpse of the elusive local wildlife, wrangling livestock, or spending time with my studio sidekick, Walden the dog.
