Trenton Jung – Nature Illustration and Fine Art

About Trenton Jung – Nature Illustration and Fine Art

Trenton Jung is a natural science illustrator based in Tucson, AZ. Born and raised outside of Los Angeles, CA, the sun and ocean play an influential role in Trenton’s art practice. He received his BFA in Illustration from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He is also an active member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators.
Trenton’s work reflects his deep interest in organic forms, and focuses on the unseen and unnoticed aspects of nature. He uses a variety of mediums to represent my observations including watercolor, graphite, colored pencil, and gouache. To successfully communicate information and capture the complexities of the natural world, observation and understanding his subjects are the keys to his work.
His work has been featured in Smithsonian magazine, at the Woodard Lab (University of Riverside, CA), in Anthropocene, and Nature (science journals). He has exhibited work in Washington D.C., Baltimore, MD, Fullerton, CA, and Brisbane, Australia.
