Meg Sodano grew up in Connecticut, exploring the woodlands and seashore and drawing her favorite animals. Summers that she spent in the Green Mountains eventually lured her northward to earn a B.S. in biology and animal science (pre-veterinary focus) at the University of Vermont. Years later, realizing a way to weave biology into her artistic roots, she sought formal illustration training at Rhode Island School of Design and received certificates in Natural Science Illustration and Children’s Book Illustration.
Her specialties are pencil, pen and ink, watercolor, and digital media. She spends as much time in nature as possible, because experiencing a subject in its environment is an essential part of telling its story. As a member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators, Meg has shown work at several juried exhibitions, including the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History, Telfair Museum, Pomfret Audubon Center, South Shore Natural Science Center, Warwick Museum of Art, and Thacher Nature Center.
She has been selected as an-artist-residence at Edmund Niles Huyck Preserve and Platte Clove Preserve in the Catskill Mountains. Her illustrations are also part of the interpretive exhibits at Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut, Huyck Preserve in New York State, and the Franklin Park Children’s Zoo in Boston.
