Alexandra is an ecologist and illustrator seeking to savor and share the balm and beauty of the earth through art and science education. She earned a B.A. in Philosophy from St. John’s College and an M.S. in Wildlife Ecology from Texas State University and has since been primarily focused on bird research and conservation. Discovering that illustrating the subjects of her research helped her to better understand and connect with them, she began sharing her illustrations, eventually deciding to professionally incorporate art into her message of stewardship and appreciation for the natural world. Last year she completed the Science Illustration Graduate Certificate program at CSUMB, and is currently working in Arctic Alaska for USFWS searching for shorebird nests. She is passionate about finding creative and interdisciplinary ways to communicate the findings of sound science and plans to one day illustrate all of the birds of the world.
