Stephanie Rozzo is a freelance science illustrator based out of Monterey, California. Her art portrays plants, animals, people and geology in a realistic style. She specializes in synthesizing a variety of information in order to communicate a complex idea through art. This is achieved by research and consultations with professionals. Her art also brings clarity to images and shows subjects in a way that cannot be photographed. Some of Stephanie’s clients include The National Geographic Society, Riverkeeper: New York’s Clean Water Advocate, San Francisco SPCA, and Sagehen Creek Field Station.
Stephanie has been drawing life since she was a very young child but was always also interested in Natural History. This led her to earn a Bachelorof Science in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. As an undergraduate she took courses in Drawing and Color & Design. While studying abroad in Australia at Newcastle University, she took advantage of the opportunity to take an introductory course in Scientific Illustration. Stephanie’s passion for animals led her to many animal-related work experiences including, but not limited to veterinary assisting, wildlife rehabilitation, zoo education, and zookeeping and training of various Sonoran desert and exotic animals. Stephanie’s combined interest in science and art led her to earn a Graduate Certificate in Scientific Illustration from California State University, Monterey Bay.
Stephanie’s goal as a scientific illustrator is to inspire scientific awareness, appreciation, understanding and nature conservation through art. Please view her website at www.stephanierozzo.com to see more of her work.
