Kelsey Keaton holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 2011.
She's spent innumerable hours cataloging insect specimens, hand-setting metal type, sewing book bindings and arranging flowers - all of which figure heavily in her work.
She is currently employed at the Field Museum of Natural History as a Grants Specialist and is working on an illustrated fairytale about a natural history museum.
