2006 - SCIENTIFIC ILLUSTRATION. I had the great pleasure of participating in the master's certificate program in Science Illustration at the University of California, Santa Cruz, which has since moved to CSUMB (http://scienceillustration.org/). There I met a group of wonderful instructors and artists, many of whom have gone on to do amazing things, and there I created my first paintings.
2007 - FREELANCE EDITING And ILLUstration. Since graduating from the program, I have been freelancing as an art development and development editor for science textbooks. I have worked with authors, artists, and compositors to reinvigorate art programs for numerous titles, and have handled the project management of many books from inception to final text.
1996 - MY LOVE OF NATURe. I graduated with a B.S. in Biology from Oklahoma Christian University. In class, I gained a fascination with how things work, especially plants, animals, and the human body.
