About

I am an Independent Researcher focusing on natural history and scientific illustration. Historical SciArt is primarily based on the collections of Biodiversity Heritage Library.  BHL is a consortium of outstanding libraries, archives, special collections, and museums whose natural history works have been digitized and gathered in one central place, making BHL a digital natural history library of the highest caliber.

In June 2016, I created @HistSciArt on Twitter to share my discoveries, and I have expanded @HistSciArt to Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, and Pinterest.

I live in the great city of Chicago with my greyhound, Wyatt. Feel free to reach out to me!
