About: Helina Chin is a graphic designer and science illustrator. She loves good food, good coffee and good times.

"I have been able to find expression and further my passions in both science and art in the form of Science Illustration. I'm incredibly lucky to be at the intersection of art and science and able to apply my creative abilities to help  educate and enamor everyone to the beauty and important messages in nature and science.  Photography is another medium used in the same vein. There is something to be said about the science behind photography - capturing millions of moving light particles in an instant and preserving it onto a substrate for a lifetime is incredibly fascinating. The visual results, just as much. Graphic Design in my work helps to tell the story behind the piece with the respect to the spirit of the message."
