About Kate Halpin

I grew up in Alaska where I began my love for plants and the natural world at a young age. I am formally trained as a plant systematist with a master’s degree in Botany and now live and work on a carnivorous plant farm in coastal Alabama. I strive to capture the beautiful union of science and art using a combination of painting and scientific illustration. I enjoy painting on wood, incorporating the beautiful wood grain into my paintings. I paint with acrylics, watercolors, and inks.
