Mark A. Klingler is an award-winning scientific illustrator at Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, PA, where his job involves bringing fossil animals to life in vibrant reconstructions. His ability to recreate lifelike environments for long-extinct creatures comes from his passion for (modern) wildlife and nature conservation. From Field to Studio is an entertaining tour through some of Mark's favorite projects - whether the critters are extinct or still with us - as he shows how his love for wild spaces is channeled into lively works of art. Mark will also share images from the highly popular Field Guide to the Natural World of New York City, for which he created over 130 watercolor illustrations of plant and animal species commonly found in New York City.
A Book signing will follow the lecture.
