Studying insects, sometimes as an artist

Tierney Brosius is an assistant professor of biology professor at Augustana College who also happens to be an accomplished illustrator. She combines her passion for entomology — the study of insects — with beautifully detailed drawings.

In Talking Art on WVIK, Dr. Brosius talks about why drawing helps connect us to a subject matter more deeply, why scientists who are illustrators often portray insects in a truer light, and why we should foster and cultivate our connection to nature.
