Here is another person asking for education/career advice on the GNSI forums. She is an artist with 
an interest in science.


   I graduated with a Bachelor in Fine Arts and have no higher education in science, though it has 
been an interest and passion of mine since I was a child. In high school I remember taking as many 
science and art courses as I could and then chose to attend art school. I have struggled for years 
as an independent artist and am interested in taking my degree to another level by pursuing 
Scientific Illustration. I have a special love for the ocean and am a certified diver as well and am 
curious about any overlapping opportunities.

As far as further education goes, what is my best course of action in pursuing Scientific 
Illustration after obtaining a Bachelor in Fine Arts? What sort of science courses are recommended? 
I have read info on people receiving degrees in science first then arts but not the other way around 
so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you


Any Advice to offer her?  I think it can be pretty tough without getting involved in a non-paid 
capacity to put some roots down in the community. And make sure you can talk the lingo a bit.
