My Bio
Art can make us look with wonder at the world around us, as well as teach us. I create art to foster appreciation and knowledge of the natural world, and inspire people to support conservation measures. I am a graduate of the University of Washington's Natural Science Illustration program, and have taught visitors of all ages about nature in zoos, aquariums, and museums for over 15 years.

I also love to create art that celebrates the arts that I love... which means I do fan art just for fun!

I am! My usual account is xfkirsten.tumblr.com/, but I haven't posted there in months (mainly because I got tired of childish fan drama going on my dashboard). My main science art tumblr is illustratorkirsten.tumblr.com/
Haven't been on DA in quite awhile, just popped in and saw this today... CONGRATULATIONS!! That is an incredible honor, and well-deserved!
