With a background in scientific illustration, Melissa Wagner’s work uses a variety of methods and media to engage the natural world. Melissa playfully composes her vision of a world that harnesses natural subjects to construct new models where art, earth, science, and wonder intersect. Melissa draws her inspiration from her love of nature and extensive local and global travels.

“The Pursuit” overlays the mystery and magic of everyday images with texts and cartography that invoke the act of looking forward––letting the lines and paths lead, taking a moment to observe and create one’s own narrative.
