Calene Luczo is a professional freelance marine science illustrator. Her undergraduate career in marine biology, scientific SCUBA diving, and art propelled her toward completing a Graduate Certificate in Science Illustration from CSU Monterey Bay in 2012. Since then, she has done projects for organizations locally and globally, including The Point Lobos Foundation, Monterey Peninsula Regional Park District, WIRED science, the Environmental Protection Agency of Ireland, the Bay Foundation, Carnegie Institute of Science, Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium, and the U.S. Navy.
The goal of her artwork is to create a window for people to better see and understand the natural history of coastal species and ecosystems with the hope of inspiring marine and coastal terrestrial conservation efforts. A portion of the proceeds from her work are donated to ocean conservation organizations and programs.
