Celebrating Intersections of Art and Science

I am a scientific illustrator who seeks to accurately reflect the natural forms that we study and cherish. Watercolor, gouache, graphite, and acrylic are the mediums with which I am most familiar. I specialize in portraiture, biological illustration, and mural-type works depicting landscapes and the complex webs of life they support.
