My senior thesis project combines illustration with my love of nature and conservation. I grew up in outside Boston in Revere, Massachusetts, and was fascinated by the variety of life that thrived in the urban area. I spent my summers walking along rocky shores looking for sand dollars and sea anemone. After a summer of interning at the Visitor Education department at the New England Aquarium, I became obsessed with teaching others about ways we can protect our planet. I wrote and illustrated this story on what Boston means to me. Follow the heroine through her journey around the harbor learning about the local species and how to protect her home.
