About the Artist

I work as a Senior Illustration Editor at Annual Reviews and as a freelance artist out of my home studio in Half Moon Bay, CA. I grew up on the coast and have always been inspired by the ocean and its creatures. I have a B.S. in aquatic biology from UC Santa Barbara and a graduate certificate in scientific illustration from UC Santa Cruz. I use illustration, collage, and infographics to educate the public about science and environmental conservation.
