I never understood how butterflies received their name. I always thought that flutterbies were more appropriate.

Hey friends! I'm a biogeochemist stationed in Philadelphia, but after I get done playing in lab each day, I draw my heart out.

My art ranges from extreme photo-realism pointillism to more playful and abstract line art. I'm completely self-taught, and so I'm still trying to figure out "my style", and my gallery is largely a reflection of the many transformation of the techniques that I've used.

At this point in my life, I'm taking commissions/art trades/collaborations :heart: Just message me xoxo
Hi friends,

It's been eons since I've updated on here, but I'm back (for real!). 

I just graduated, and so now I'm a full fledged biogeochemist living in Philadelphia. But art is still such a huge part of my life and I've been keeping a sketchbook for the past year. I'll be updating my gallery to reflect the my new work (so please excuse the backlog of drawing from 2015), but hopefully it won't take too long to get caught up. 

I'm also taking suggestions/commissions/art trades/collaboration/etc. etc., so please message me if you're interested! Here's a few samples of my more recent work for reference:

there's a crab apple tree outside of the farm house in Vermont. every year we wait for the apples to fall off the tree and extract the pectin out of them to make fruit jellies with

black micron pens and glitter gel pens on paper

driving down dirt roads in Vermont in the summer of 2015, we passed a makeshift stand where they were selling bouquets for 50 cents each. I picked the prettiest one to draw before they wilted in the summer heat
