Kandis Elliot understands she has an “old-timey” job.  Back in the 1800’s scientists relied on artists to illustrate textbooks and wall charts, but in the digital age, much of that work has been replaced by photos.  Elliot is one of the few biological artists left, and she believes her paintings bring plants alive in a way that could never be achieved digitally.
