From drawing images out of her science books in second grade all the way to covering her walls in plant structures, molecules and diagrams in college, Helina has always been riding the line between art and science. After graduating from UC Davis with a BS in Plant Biology she worked in wine country and took graphic design courses at SRJC. In 2013 she will have earned the Science Illustration Certificate from CSUMB followed by an internship at the Smithsonian. Helina is inspired by colorful and unusual scientific phenomena and hopes to continue producing imagery that evokes an emotional response and get people to care about the world around us.
