I am a lapsed marine biologist and an unrepentant doodler. I am particularly fond of illustrating the more unusual members of the animal kingdom as well as ecological and conservation issues. 

I strive to show nature in all its’ diversity and brilliance. I also focus on the connection between science communication and the visual arts. I am interested in the different strategies plants and animals use to adapt and thrive as well as their role in the ecosystem in which they inhabit.

My style varies from realism, surrealism, abstraction, and anywhere in between. My preferred mediums are watercolor, gouache, acrylic paint, and ink. 

When I am not doodling or considering the connection between art and science I enjoy hiking, reading, yoga, a good beer, and anything pickled.
