She has spent several years working as an art educator in museum spaces, teaching scientific illustration workshops at the Field Museum, the National Museum of Scotland, the California Academy of Sciences, and the Puget Sound Museum, and she is passionate about introducing anyone and everyone to the world of science illustration! Madison currently serves on the national board for the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators as well as on the board for the local GNSI-Northwest chapter.
