MAKING SCIENCE BEAUTIFUL.
Taylor Maggiacomo is a science illustrator and graphic designer from southern California. Taylor graduated with a B.S. in Biology and minor in Art at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, where she discovered her passion for science illustration as a way to combine her two interests of science and art. She then went on to study at California State University Monterey Bay’s Scientific Illustration Certificate Program.
