Selected works

My work is focused on natural history subjects like animal and plant species taxonomy, astronomy, and biodiversity. I illustrate primarily in gouache (a type of opaque paint similar to watercolor) on paper, with little or no adjustments to digital scans of my paintings. My published work includes books (both illustrations of other authors' works and illustrations of my own work), games, puzzles, magazines, and more- all themed around nature. The following are selected works from the past few years. Please contact me with any questions or comments.
