I am a freelance science illustrator. I believe that illustration not only transmits known information, it can also uncover new information and theories via a dialog between the artist and researcher. I have a B.A. in Anthropology from University of California, Berkeley, a M.A. in Field and Analytical Techniques in Archaeology from University College London, and a Certificate in Science Illustration from the internationally renown program at California State University, Monterey Bay. My education has given me strong research skills which I am interested in applying to a range of scientific topics. Each illustration completed adds to my knowledge of the natural world and increases my wonder at the beauty to be found at both the macro and micro levels. I specialize in archaeological illustration and have many years experience as an excavator and archaeobotanist. This experience informs and enriches my artifact illustrations, building reconstructions, and illustrations of past people.
