Kelsey Keaton holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

She's spent an inordinate number of hours cataloging insect specimens, organizing metal type, sewing book bindings, and caring for plants - all of which figure heavily in her work.

She’s also photographed nearly 2,000 beetles (including one caught by Darwin himself) that are available as part of an online resource for researchers worldwide.

She is currently working on an illustrated fairytale about a natural history museum.
