When you see a rock on the ground, you may not give it a second of thought. When I look at that rock, I see a capsule packed full of chapters from Earth's story.
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.
Born and raised in good ol' Atlanta, GA. I graduated from Oberlin College in 2018, earning degrees in geology and chemistry. I recently earned a Certificate in Science Illustration from California State University, Monterey Bay.
'm currently based in Brooklyn, New York where I work as a Multimedia Assistant, Illustration at Newsela, Inc. I specialize in digital artwork but I also paint and sketch.
Outside of science illustration, I write comics, design creatures and, of course, collect rocks.
My work has been featured in Scientific American, ScienceNews Magazine, SciTech Daily, EarthSky, FoxNews, Universe Today, Geophysical Research Letters, and Vector: The Boston Children's Hospital Blog
What does it stand for?
I work in the following programs:
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.
