ABOUT THE ARTIST
I am a freelance illustrator from the mountain town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. In 2016 I graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Illustration. I am currently located in Eugene, Oregon.
My upbringing in a wild space in the mountains has greatly influenced how I see the world and the art I create. A lifelong love for nature and animals has guided my work into the realm of conservation. My goal is to use artwork to engage the public in learning about what's going on in the natural world and what we can do to protect it. I believe that playful and accessible images are the key to effective science communication.

P U B L I C A T I O N S
In the summer of 2017 I collaborated with Sasquatch Books on BirdNote, a collection of 100 illustrated essays on bird behavior from the NPR podcast of the same name. I produced 101 illustrations for the book, mostly of western and Pacific Northwest bird species. The book is currently available online and at independent bookstores worldwide.
Beak To Feet
Since 2016 I have been working with the Teton Raptor Center to create portraits of their permanent resident raptors for use on merchandise and publications like Beak To Feet, an educational book about raptors, their habitat, their adaptations, and the conservation work done at the Teton Raptor Center.
