Michelle Anderst is a Pacific Northwest based oil painter and scientific illustrator whose paintings of biological subjects serve as both works of art as well as aesthetic statements on ecological consciousness in the modern world. She describes each of her compositions as a ritual or magic spell that weaves geometry, planetary correlations and mystical symbolism into the piece. Through her art, Anderst conveys a sense of wonder, curiosity and appreciation for the natural world, commonly overlooked non-human microcosms, microscopic creatures and complex ecological systems.
