From an early age, Miranda Zimmerman was an art and nature enthusiast. Growing up in Fresno, California, she often passed the time by illustrating digitally with the peaceful sounds of David Attenborough in the background. Her work is influenced by both the real and fictional- often drawing inspiration from mythology and animated stories. Unable to choose between her two loves of art and science, she finally decided to get her Bachelors degree in Biology (with a concentration in Evolution and Ecology), and a minor in Visual Art at CSU Monterey Bay. It was there that she discovered the field of Science Illustration, and subsequently, CSUMB’s renowned Science Illustration post graduate program. She has since gone on to intern at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, and manage her own personal brand.
