Exploring illustrative techniques and how they serve the intersection of art and science has always been my passion. Currently I am undertaking an Honours year in Natural History Illustration at the University of Newcastle. In the past few years I've been developing my creative techniques and studying animals and artefacts as part of accurate illustrative field work. These skills have been applied to publishing of contemporary research papers; comparing the anatomy of various fish species at the University of Sydney and exhibits such as ‘Botanica’ at the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens. I hold a strong dedication to studying animals in their native habitat and rendering artefacts, but this year I have begun using artistic techniques in service of the medical field. In collaboration with researchers at John Hunter Hospital, I am developing visual tools to communicate the quantum mechanics of chemical interactions causal of ill health.
