John Megahan grew up in the Pacific Northwest, where the mountains of Idaho, Oregon and Washington instilled in him a deep love and appreciation for nature.

In college, he studied art and biology, and after graduation worked as a freelance illustrator for commercial and educational institutions.

Since 1996, he has been a scientific illustrator for the U-M Museum of Zoology. In addition to scientific illustration and painting, he occasionally teaches at the U-M Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design, the University of Oregon and illustrates children’s books.

Now, his oil and acrylic artwork is on display at Michigan Medicine:
