Caroline Misselbrook – Daff Illustration CV (download available soon)

I strive to demonstrate commitment and enthusiasm for any task I am set and enjoy being challenged. My recent work has tested my ability to communicate complex scientific themes using a variety of methods and materials, including laser cutting, printmaking and bookworks. My work is not only a visual interpretation of scientific information, but on a more personal level, is a way to gain a better understanding of where we come from, engage with the natural  world and appreciate the wonders of our universe. My interests and sources of inspiration are born from a life long passion for art, music and science; I am happiest when I’m being creative, reading, listening to music, going to concerts and visiting art galleries and museums.
