I'm a visual science communicator. Science can be vague, too complex or straight up confusing. That's why illustrations and figures are crucial to public understanding. My goal with my science illustration is to inspire people to give objects, even an everyday rock on the street, a chance to spark some interest.
I operate out of San Francisco. I currently work full-time as an Editorial Production Lead at Newsela.
Outside of science illustration, I write comics, paint, take care of my dear snakes, of course, collect rocks.
Born and raised in good ol' Atlanta, GA, I graduated from Oberlin College in 2018 with a double major in geology and chemistry. In 2019, I earned a Certificate in Science Illustration from California State University, Monterey Bay.
I will take on most science related projects but I am best equipped for topics relating to climate, geology, agriculture, chemistry and physics.
My work has been featured in Scientific American, Science, Biogeochemistry, Global Change Biology, Biochemistry, Soil Biology and Biochemistry, PNAS, ScienceNews Magazine, SciTech Daily, EarthSky, Universe Today, Geophysical Research Letters, and Vector: The Boston Children's Hospital Blog
What does it stand for?
E stands for me! It's my family's given nickname.
Lab (short for laboratory) represents any place where scientific research is done.
Arts... well, that's obvious.
