KRISTA ANANDAUTTAN Illustrator, artist, teacher
Illustrating for research and education on scientific topics since 2008.

Traditional and digital media for the web and print. Engaging and accurate illustrations for academic, general, and young audiences. Clients include government and academic institutions, research departments, labs, companies, individual researchers.

I insist that the worlds of science and art intersect. All these things are inspiring: puddles of ink and color, cellular structures, sleeping butterflies and the width of a finch’s beak. I can be found on cliff edges, museum vaults, classrooms and jungles. I like that I am required to give each subject my fullest attention and creativity.
