Logan Parsons was born and raised in Pacific Grove, California. She received her bachelor's degree in environmental science from Western Washington University and the following year obtained her graduate certificate in science illustration from the University of California Extension, Santa Cruz. Upon graduation she completed internships at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, PA and at Scientific American magazine in New York City.

Nature has always been the primary influence in Logan's art; capturing the character of its many odd, funny, and beautiful organisms. She also holds a deep appreciation for designs and compositions (especially within the sciences) that successfully convey information while at the same time having an aesthetic appeal.

Logan now lives and works as a part-time high school art teacher and freelance illustrator based out of Santa Cruz, CA. She continues to seek out new artistic experiences and connect with nature on a daily basis.
