Introduction about myself

I'm a biologist with a love of art.  My background in biology includes whale watching in Hawaii, monitoring wild bluebird eggs in California, banding birds in West Virginia, and working with salmon mitigation here in Washington.  I'm from Minnesota, but I've loved to travel from an early age.  Seeing art from different countries and cultures has always sucked me in and drawn my interest.

Currently, I am pursuing a degree in graphic design.  I would love to combine my biology background and my love of the outdoors with my love of art.  I hope to work in the design or public information department for an environmental firm, wildlife group, or government wildlife department.

I'm interested in art history and I am hoping to learn about the different periods and styles of art to give me a solid background for designing.
