NATURE ILLUSTRATION

The first book illustrations I did were the botanicals for Medicine From the Mountains: Medicinal Plants of the Sierra Nevada in 1995. Matching my illustration style with my personal interest in the history of botanical medicine made the project one of my favorites and set the stage for many more projects involving nature topics. I can think of nothing better than to combine nature, research, and illustration!
