BETHANN GARRAMON MERKLE: DRAWINGS THAT BRING NATURE TO LIFE I am an artist and photojournalist who believes everyone can learn to sketch. Along with teaching sketching workshops and classes, my passion is creating images that communicate about the natural world, food, and sustainability. I create quirky-yet-elegant illustrations and vivid photographs that capture people’s attention. I also teach and coach others interested in learning to draw and incorporate images into their research, teaching, and public outreach efforts. Ultimately, my motives are to use compelling images to: - increase collaboration - improve scientific literacy - encourage positive action among ordinary citizens, policy makers, and scientists My award-winning work can be seen in numerous publications, including American Scientist, Camas, Montana Outdoors, the Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph (where I pen the Drawn to Quebec illustrated column), and State of the Arts (where I write the Dear Digit artful tech advice column). I embrace visual communication projects such as doing photography for Parks Canada or leading a sketching workshop for scientists at the 2014 Ecological Society of America’s annual meeting. Your purchases support the 'revalorization' of art in science. Thank you for your interest, and feel free to contact me regarding commissions or to discuss how to incorporate artful communication into your next project.

BETHANN GARRAMON MERKLE: DRAWINGS THAT BRING NATURE TO LIFE

I am an artist and photojournalist who believes everyone can learn to sketch. Along with teaching sketching workshops and classes, my passion is creating images that communicate about the natural world, food, and sustainability.

I create quirky-yet-elegant illustrations and vivid photographs that capture people’s attention.

I also teach and coach others interested in learning to draw and incorporate images into their research, teaching, and public outreach efforts.

Ultimately, my motives are to use compelling images to:

  • increase collaboration
  • improve scientific literacy
  • encourage positive action among ordinary citizens, policy makers, and scientists

My award-winning work can be seen in numerous publications, including American Scientist, Camas, Montana Outdoors, the Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph (where I pen the Drawn to Quebec illustrated column), and State of the Arts (where I write the Dear Digit artful tech advice column). I embrace visual communication projects such as doing photography for Parks Canada or leading a sketching workshop for scientists at the 2014 Ecological Society of America’s annual meeting.
