INFOGRAPHICS AND OTHERS
As a naturalist, I have been fortunate to live my career with one foot in art and the other in biology.
Born and raised in Costa Rica, my sense of being at home comes from luxuriant tropical rainforests and tall, foggy mountains. My enthusiasm for wildlife began at an early age with a large focus on reptiles, but in time my interest expanded to other groups of organisms. Such interest in natural history and conservation led me to do my studies at university in biology, ecology and natural sciences.
My path in arts has been intertwined with my zeal for wild and green things. To this day I continue filling nature journals page after page; sketching animals, landscapes and fossils. In the field of art, I have worked as a scientific illustrator, cartoonist and I was lucky to be a 2D animator at the talented animation house Martestudio.
I have been sharing my passion for the natural world as a speaker, environmental educator, writer and naturalist guide, working with organizations, such as the Organization for Tropical Studies, the Sierra Institute (formally part of the Humboldt State University), Wolf Haven International and more recently, Mass Audubon. During my summers since 2010 I have been a trip for National Geographic Student Expeditions, teaching Wildlife and Conservation in locations such as the Galapagos Islands, the Canadian Arctic, Brazil, Australia, Belize, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia.
In 2022 I joined Biomimicry 3.8 as a full-time staff in professional training and illustration, where I have the privilege of working with talented and visionary people, who seek bio-inspired solutions for a better world.
