Megan Gnekow

I represent the 7th generation of my family to live and work in Santa Cruz. I graduated from the UC Santa Cruz Science Illustration program in 2009. I have created illustrations for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Filoli, as well as various private clients. My great passion is bringing people back to connection with the natural world through artistic experiences.

To that end, I strive to create works that bring your attention to what is beautiful and perhaps overlooked in the world that surrounds us. Whether it’s the underside of a butterfly wing or the elegance of a condor in flight, I work to do justice to the beauty of our world. I hope you’ll join me in looking closer, spending more time, appreciating what we have.
