Laurie Mahan Sawyer dedicates her art to engaging viewers in the wonder and complexity of the natural world.

This exhibition focuses on species and habitats of the marine world, from delicate watercolors of microscopic animals to bold scratchboard or ink on clay board depicting details of kelp and the life cycle of salmon.

A longtime resident of Point Reyes Station in coastal Marin County, she grew up on the southern California coast in Malibu. She found her passion for marine biology while in high school. Sawyer graduated with a degree in illustration from the Art Center College of Design, and a degree in science illustration from California State University, Monterey Bay.

She has collaborated with such organizations as NOAA at Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary and Marin Resource Conservation District. She has worked in scientific illustration, created lively murals, and taught art classes. Her work informs her viewers and invites them to be curious and learn more about nature.
