Biology - Research & Education - Ecosystems Past & Present
Communicating science visually in traditional and digital media for the web and print. Illustrating takes me on cliff edges, dinosaur excavations, jungles and classrooms, millions of years into the past and the microscopic world.
Graduate work in both scientific illustration and natural history interpretation perfectly suits me to convey challenging scientific concepts to a variety of audiences. I can't wait to hear about your project!
