Class of 2018
As a little girl, I wished that I could travel back in time and become a naturalist. I dreamed of discovering strange creatures and exotic plants while trekking through unexplored jungles and unmapped peaks. I would draw them and name them and then send my journals back home so everyone could see what I saw, so everyone could see how beautiful and wild the world is. How lucky I am to have discovered the field of scientific illustration! My childhood wishes have been fulfilled: I can share all the amazing and wonderful things I see with the rest of the world, and strive to impart the of the awe I feel in nature with my artwork.
