About the Artist & Biologist:
As a conservation biologist, science educator and artist, Kevin’s mission is to protect, explain and flaunt aspects of the natural world. As sole designer and fabricator at Bug Under Glass, a San Francisco Green Certified business, Kevin hopes to restore a sense of wonder about the natural world that is fleeting in an increasingly urban and technology driven world.
Kevin’s lifelong love and concern for insects directed him to a Master’s degree in Conservation Biology, a scientific publication, and rich experiences working in the prestigious entomology departments of the California Academy of Science and IZIKO South African Museum.
His insect art combines his passions of conservation, education and art and has been seen in Pottery Barn & West Elm catalogs, Apartment Therapy and hangs on the walls of the Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum in Hollywood, CA.
Kevin holds a B.S in Psychology from Boston College and a Master of Biology from San Francisco State University. He lives in San Francisco with his wife, a cocker spaniel, and a son named after an entomologist.
