My aesthetic in both my scientific illustration and fine art are based in my interests in biology, geology, and the natural world. My work is influenced by the time I've spent doing volunteer conservation work in South Africa, Costa Rica, Mexico, and paleontological fieldwork at various sites in the Western U.S and Mexico.
I have done scientific illustration for various paleontological publications, the newly renovated Dinosaur National Monument, the Marco Island Historical Society's museum, and for the History Channel'sbook and series, "Mankind: The Story of All of Us." My artwork has appeared in Scientific American, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, and on several major television news outlets including NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and the CBS Evening News. I am also an active fine artist and have participated in a number of fine art shows at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Artists' House Gallery, Pterodactyl Gallery, and the Plastic Club in Philadelphia, among others.
I was privileged to work as a scientific illustrator for Walters and Kissinger from 2010 to 2014. In 2013, I accepted a year-long artist's residency for the Wagner Free Institute of Science's SNAP program in which I taught paleontology and paleo art to inner city middle school students. I currently live in Ekalaka, Montana working at the Carter County Museum in Montana where I focus on marketing, exhibit design, graphic design, and paleontological field work. This work has greater implications on my graduate work in Museum Studies at Johns Hopkins University as I am able to incorporate my real world experience into the theoretical knowledge I am building in academia. I have a highly active freelance business in illustration and taxidermy and am currently taking commissions.
