As a science illustrator, I strive to communicate science topics (particularly in marine biology) in a clear and engaging manner in order to make science more accessible to the public. Most of my freelance work is created for researchers, marine laboratories, engineering companies, parks, and local environmental organizations that fight to protect the ecosystems I know and love (see list of clients and publications). In addition to working as a freelance artist, I am an instructor for the Science Illustration Program at CSUMB. I teach field sketching and support digital illustration classes.
If you are interested in hiring me for an illustration project, please send me an email at email@example.com.
