Jane Kim has painted hundreds of species of animals as a scientific illustrator who creates large scale installations and murals, “inspiring people to love and protect the earth one work of art at a time.” This is the motto of Ink Dwell, the studio she co-founded to help spread her message about conservation and activism. She recently completed a two-and-a-half year project at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology where she painted 260 species of birds at full scale.

In this episode of Art School, take a trip to the California Academy of Sciences with Jane Kim as she draws inspiration from their collection and talks about an early obsession with teddy bears that led her to a life of using art to give the natural world a stronger voice. She also explains how research and location play an important role in her projects and help encourage environmental stewardship.
